how to Get Rid of TicksWant to know how to get rid of ticks?

Come see us!

When it comes to our pets, we hate seeing them suffer. So when you run your hands through your pet’s coat, and notice little “bumps” or “raised spots,” look a little closer to see what it is that you’re feeling. Sometimes, a close inspection reveals those bumps are actually ticks, feeding off the blood of your pet. We can show you how to get rid of ticks.

Ticks are most active from spring through fall and live in tall brush or grass, but can also be found in desert terrain and even in yards with xeriscape landscaping. The ticks can attach to dogs when the animals are playing where ticks live. These parasites prefer to stay close to the head, neck, feet, and ear areas of animals. But in severe infestations, they can be found anywhere on a pet’s body and even stray to other animals that stay inside or even to you!

Why is it so important to get rid of ticks?

Ticks can transmit diseases such as Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, all of which can cause serious complications and are potentially fatal without prompt and proper treatment. So now is the time to act!

We’re pet owners at Bug & Weed MART, too, so we know what you’re going through. We’ll help you get rid of ticks with 3 very effective steps: applying the best spray + granule combination, as well a safe solution for your pet’s coat. We’ll write up a custom treatment plan for you, then show you exactly how to do it.

    Never try to pull a tick from the animal. The head will remain in the animal below the skin. This may cause tick fever in the animal. Coat a qtip with baby oil or vegetable oil and completely coat the tick. Since it breathes through its exoskeleton, it will back itself out of the animal. Good luck.
