WHAT ARE TICKS?

Ticks are small arachnids. Ticks require blood meals to complete their complex life cycles. Ticks are scientifically classified as Arachnida (a classification that includes spiders). The fossil record suggests ticks have been around at least 90 million years. There are over 800 species of Ticks throughout the world, but only two families of Ticks. lxodidae (hard Ticks) and Argasidae (soft Ticks), are known to transmit diseases or illness to humans. Hard Ticks have a scutum or hard plate, on their back while soft Ticks do not.

Ticks have a complex life cycle that inculdes eggs, larvae, nymphs, and adult male and female Ticks. The larvae, nymphs, and adults all need blood meals. Usually, the female adult (hard Tick) is the one causing the most bites as males usually die after mating. Ticks do not jump or fly. They simply reach out with their legs and grab and crawl onto a host. Although Ticks will die eventually if they do not get a blood meal, many species can survive a year or more without a blood meal. Disease transmission can occur in less than a minute with soft Ticks. The bite of some of these soft Ticks produces intensely painful reactions.

WHAT DISEASES DO TICKS TRANSMIT?

Tularemia, Anaplasmosis, Colorado tick fever, Powassan encephalitis, Babesiosis, Enrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Heartland virus and Lyme Disease

HOW DO I REMOVE A TICK FROM THE SKIN?

1. Wear hand protection such as gloves so you don't spread pathogens from the tick to your hands; use forceps or tweezers to grab the tick at skin level.

2. Grasp the tick firmly with the tweezers as close to the skin as possible without crushing the tick. Apply gentle pulling motion upward until the tick comes free. Twisting or turning the tick does not make removal easier because the mouthparts are barbed; in fact, such actions may break off the head and mouthparts thereby increasing the chances for infection.

3. Once the tick is removed, don't crush the tick because it may release pathogens. Consider keeping it in a tightly closed jar or taped to a piece of paper. Show the tick to the doctor if the person bitten becomes ill after the tick bite. Flush any removed ticks not kept for identification down the toilet or sink.

4. The area of hte bite should leave a small crater or indentation where the head and mouthparts were embedded. If portions of the head or mouthparts remain, they may be removed by a doctor.

5. Thoroughly cleanse the bite area with soap and water or mild disinfectant. Observe the area for several days for development of a reaction to the bite (rash or signs of infection). Apply antibiotic cream to the area as a precaution. Application of an antibiotic to the area may help prevent a local infection but usually does not effect the chance of developing diseases transmitted by the tick.

6. Wash hands thoroughly after handling any tick or instruments that touched a tick. Clean and disinfect any instruments that were uesed.

FLEAS AND DISEASE

fleas often probe the skin before taking a blood meal. Ater 30 minutes, lines or clusters of itchy red marks appear. On sensitive persons, bites develope into raised bumps within 24 hours after being bitten. Fleas have been associated with humans and other animals for thousands of years. A bacterium (Yersinia pestis). spread by fleas killed 25 million people, more than a quarter of the European population, in 14 century Europe. This was called the "black plague".

FLEA LIFE CYCLE

We are most familiar with adult fleas, those specks that jump and occasionally bite, but spend most of their lives on cats and dogs. Fleas reproduce rapidly. Eggs are laid on the animal while it sleeps or rests. They are not sticky and fall down into the pet's bed, where the offspring are most likely to find food. the eggs hatch into tiny (1/8 inch) larve; white worm like, legless and blind. They shy away from light and wiggle their way down into animal's bedding, carpet, grass, etc. This stage has chewing mouthparts and does not suck blood. They do, however, feed on digested blood in the form of feces from the adult fleas, as well as bits of dead skin, feathers and other organic debris. After growing through three molts (shedding of the exoskeleton) the larve become pupae, spining silken cocoons, which they camouflage by attaching bits of debris. Perhaps a month after the eggs are laid, adult fleas emerge from their pupal cocoons. Emergence of adults is triggered by heat (of people and pets) carbon dioxide (breath) and by physical pressure (from people and pets walking or lying on them).

PREPARING FOR A FLEA OR TICK TREATMENT

1. Vacuum or shampoo your carpet and furniture, including under the furniture and in furniture.

2. Discard vacuum cleaner bag and discard or wash pet bedding in warm soapy water.

3. Sweep and mop floors, especially under beds, closets, and baseboards. Wipe areas of pet activity with warm to hot soapy water. Flea eggs can slip off pets in any area, high or low.

4. Cover your aquariums and unplug the air pumps. Remove pet birds before treatment and not return for 24 hours.

5. Remove your your pet's food and water containers as well as litter boxes.

6. Remove all toys and clutter from your floor, and yard if necessary. Exposed floor space is a key factor to colony eliminiation.

7. It may be necessary to a access to basements, crawl spaces, garages and yards.

8. Treat pets on the day of service. We recommend taking your pets to a Veterinarian or an Animal Hospital.

9. Keep all people and pets off the property for 4-5 hours.

THE FOLLOWING THINGS NEED TO BE DONE AFTER THE TREATMENT:

1. Keep children and pets away of treated areas until the treatment has dried. This will take approximaely 4-8 hours.

2. Ventilate your house prior to occupancy.

3. Adult fleas may be observed after the treatement. The eliminiation of he fleas should not be expected for up 3 days due to the incubation period and activity of the fleas.

4. Vacumm for 14 days to pick up dead fleas and eggs.
