How will you identify that you have ticks at home?
You may have found ticks at your home or stuck on your pet’s body as a pet lover. Ticks are a blood-sucking arachnid (spider-like) parasite.
You can find them throughout the year as they can live for up to one-and-a-half years without food, making them a year-round threat to you and your pets.
Ticks prefer dogs as a host and have another name, dog ticks. Some tick species occur on bird feathers. Ticks can be dangerous as they transmit diseases to pets and people.
If you find ticks on your pets when you closely inspect them, that is a primary sign of a tick infestation.
Secondary signs of a tick infestation are symptoms of tick-transmitted diseases.

Life cycle and biology
- Tick colors vary by species but is mostly brown.
Adult ticks fed on blood can be over 1cm long while larvae are less than 1 mm. Tick larvae have only six legs during their larval stage and eight legs during their nymphal and adult stages.
After digesting her blood feed, a female tick lays 5,000 eggs in or around homes or near dog kennels.
How do ticks enter your home?
Ticks do not fly or jump but prefer long grasses for shelter, where they hook onto your pets’ fur, clothing, or skin for walks. In addition, ticks often enter homes through household pests like rats and mice.

Frequently Asked Questions
Ticks have claw-like mouths, which help them latch onto pets and prevent their hosts from dislodging them. Further, as ticks secrete an anesthetic-like chemical to numb its host’s skin, a pet may not know that a tick is riding on it and sucking blood.
Ticks don’t digest solids, so they dribble saliva into a wound they make to dissolve tissues and suck up this soup. The saliva contains enough bacteria and protozoa that ticks are among the most potent disease vectors in the world.
You must remove ticks carefully from your pets and avoid squeezing them, which may leave their head lodged in the skin even after you pull out the rest of the tick body.
Use pointed tweezers to grab the ticks by their head and swiftly pull them upward carefully and steadily.
The most effective way to kill ticks is to drop them into alcohol. However, squishing ticks may release disease-causing organisms from their blood.
