This fully engorged tick was found on a dog and fell off. It was put in a ziplock bag for two weeks. It’s been in the bag for 2 weeks with no air flow and started to lay eggs about 5 days ago, continuing to do so even still today. Imagine not knowing this was on your animal and it fell off in your house. You’d have 1000’s of baby ticks.
Please make sure your animals are currently being treated with flea and tick prevention.
We carry a few products that are very good at repelling ticks and flees, as well as preventing heartworm.
