What are Ticks?

Ticks are small, spider-like parasites that feed on animal blood, including pets, livestock and even humans. There are over 70 species of ticks in Australia. They thrive in bushy, grassy habitats.

After latching onto host animals, ticks gorge themselves on blood meals. Ticks go through four life stages; egg, larva, nymph, and adult. These external parasites can survive for months between feedings.

Common Species

Common tick species in Melbourne include the paralysis tick, bush tick and brown dog tick. Each has its dangers, like transmitting disease or releasing toxins that can paralyse animals.

The Risks of Ticks

They pose several health risks, such as:

  • Disease transmission – Tick bite can transmit the serious bacterial infection Lyme disease and Australian tick typhus, plus other co-infections
  • Toxin secretions – Some species release neurotoxins that can paralyse pets or even kill them
  • Blood loss & infections – Pets can become weak & prone to secondary infections

Signs of Infestation

  • Finding actual live adult ticks in their coat
  • Skin irritation, allergic reactions, wounds, infections where they’ve been feeding
  • Neurological issues like weakness, poor balance, dilated pupil or seizures

How to Control & Prevent Ticks

  • Treat your property professionally before and during peak seasons
