Tick Facts Newcastle - Tick Removal Newcastle
Ticks belong to class arachnids under the order Parasitiformes and the subclass Acari. They are tiny eight-legged insects that measure around 3-5 mm in length and are usually black or brown in colour. Furthermore, they are ectoparasites that feed on the blood of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians.
Ticks, like other insects, are found in all parts of the world where there is a warm and humid climate. They are disease-carrying pests that can latch on tightly to humans or pets, and cause significant discomfort. Moreover, they carry and transmit a number of bacteria to humans that can cause what we call tick-borne diseases.
Tick-borne diseases include typhus, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Flinders Island spotted fever, and Queensland tick typhus (Australian tick typhus). In addition, the list also includes rickettsialpox, Boutonneuse fever, and African tick bite fever.
They are the major carriers of Lyme disease. Apparently, some of its species are venomous like the Australian paralysis tick that can cause tick paralysis. ABC Pest Control Newcastle offers expert tick removal Newcastle services.
You can find several varieties of ticks along Australia’s east coast. In particular, the paralysis tick, the brown dog tick, and the bush tick. All of them are hardened and hungry, making them a persistent foe whose dangers include bites.
Tick bites usually require treatment because of the bacteria they often carry that infect their hosts. Hence, the serious health risk and the difficulties in combating ticks make tick removal a job for the professionals.
These parasites use their senses to detect their hosts through their body heat and odour. In addition, pets like dogs usually get infested by ticks when they get in contact with other dogs with ticks.
Ticks Newcastle Life Cycle
There are four life cycle stages of ticks: Egg, larva, nymph, and adult.
Similar to other insects or animals, tick egg is the start of their life cycle. After the egg hatched, the six-legged larva will nourish with blood for it to advance to the next stage as the nymph until it becomes an adult.
It may take up to 3 years to complete a full life cycle of a tick. However, not all of them can survive to complete their life cycle. Apparently, most of them die when they can’t find a host to feed on.
