Ticks range in size from 2 to 3.5 mm.
Ticks are arachnids, like spiders, and have eight legs.
How to Get Rid of Ticks
If you find ticks on your pet, have them immediately checked and treated by a vet, especially if they seem lethargic because this can be a sign of infection or disease from the bite. Due to the fact that ticks can lay between 1,000 to 3,000 eggs per breading cycle, it is also important to check your home for a tick infestation. Ticks lay eggs in small cracks around your home, which can make them difficult to locate and eliminate. In order to guarantee a complete removal, it is a good idea to seek the help of a local exterminator in order to ensure that the infestation is under control and eliminated.
