How to Get Rid of American Dog Ticks
Ticks are best controlled and maintained in the yard and home by hiring a professional pest control company. Yards should be cleared of over-growth and lawns kept mowed short. Pet owners should also have their animals treated for ticks either by a trip to the family veterinarian or groomer for professional shampooing or dipping or over-the-counter drops purchased through a pet supply store. On-going infestations of American Dog Ticks in a home is usually not a concern, as new young ticks that are born, cannot survive on canine blood, so they will die without small wildlife to feed on.
