Ticks are small arachnids, which live off the blood of birds and mammals. Global warming mean that across the UK there are now more ticks in the countryside, they are most abundant in long grass, rough vegetation, and woodland. They may be present throughout the year but are particularly active between May and October and especially at times of warm weather.
Adult fleas are parasites which need to feed on blood from our pets in order to survive and to breed. For young puppies, this blood loss can be distressing and life threatening. In adult pets, the main problem is the flea bite, which leads to irritation and skin allergy problems. The flea season lasts from the end of April to the end of November, however, fleas have become an all year round problem with central heating allowing them to breed throughout the year in your home.
