We’ll keep your family and furry friends safe

We love the warm and humid weather. But so does one tiny terror pest—ticks. Pets usually pick up ticks and bring them inside, where they quickly multiply. But with our help, families can keep their loved ones safe from these dangerous pests.

At OzPest Solutions, we use treatment and control methods that are safe for you, your pets, and the local environment.

Identifying FLEAS & Ticks

The mite bites a reddish dog

Brown dog tick

Oval and flat with reddish-brown colouring and eight legs. They are initially 3 mm long, growing to 12 mm and turn grey as they feed.

Tiny little ticks

Paralysis tick

A grey body with two pairs of brown legs and one pair of white legs. Before feeding, they are around 3 mm long, growing up to 10 mm.

FLEA & TICK BEHAVIOUR

Thanks to their appearance and biology, you might not see or even notice a tick or its bite until symptoms start. Their small size and dark colour make them hard to see, especially in long grass where they usually dwell.

Then, once a pet picks the tick up, it’s hard to see amongst their fur. The tick’s saliva acts as a numbing agent, so when they bite through the carrier’s skin (human or pet), the victim won’t feel it.

Tips to prevent fleas & ticks

Fast reactions might be needed when a tick does bite. So taking steps to prevent them can save a lot of worry. Here are a few of the easy things you can do:

Remove entry points

Checking your home for possible pest entry points is a great first step. You can:

  • Locate and fill any cracks, gaps, or holes in walls, skirting boards, doorframes, and window frames
  • Install screens and repair holes, gaps, or looseness
  • Seal the bottom of doors with a draft stopper

Pet care

We love our pets, so adding to their care routine should be easy. If you don’t already, you should:

  • Check pets regularly for signs of ticks, especially between toes, inside ears, and under collars
  • Treat pets with vet-approved flea and tick preventers
  • Wash bedding regularly with hot water
  • Keep kennels and beds clean and dry with ample airflow

Garden maintenance

Taking care of your yard prevents pests and makes it a nicer place for you. So, don’t forget to:

  • Regularly mow lawns
  • Remove and control weeds
  • Prune large shrubs to reduce inner humidity
  • Reduce and remove mulch, leaf litter, and other debris
