tick removalTicks are external parasites that live by feeding off the blood of their hosts. They prefer to live in warmer and temperate climates around the world.  

Some of the common ticks around Australia are from the Ixodid family. You would normally find the Ixodes Cornuatas in and around the VIC area.

They are pear or oval shaped, have a total of eight legs located on the lower half of their bodies. They crawl along floors, grass, walls and ceilings waiting to grasp their next host victim. They will attach themselves to any hot-blooded animal, including birds, amphibians and reptiles. They can detect the presence of their next prey through the emission of carbon dioxide and body heat. Once they have found their host they will attach themselves to it, feed and then lay eggs.

Problems associated with tick infestation

The problems associated with tick infestation are that their bites are itchy, and painful and can transmit bacteria, viruses and other harmful pathogens through their bites. These bites can cause an infection that can lead to the host (humans in this instance) with rashes, fevers, dizziness, tick paralysis and Lyme disease. As such, it is of vital importance that if you spot these around your home you should seek professional tick control services to eradicate them immediately.

The most common disease to come from a tick in VIC is Rickettsial Spotted Fever. Its symptoms include fever, nausea, vomiting, bloodshot eyes and the appearance of a red lump on the bite mark.
