Killing visible ticks in your house

Since ticks are pachyderm, killing them by squashing is not a possibility. Hence, you’ll have to resort to other ways to kill them. The optimal way to dispose of a tick is by picking it up on a piece of toilet paper, squashing it a little, and flushing it down the toilet.   

This method will not kill the tick but will definitely send it far away from your house.

Preventing ticks from sustaining outside

The possibility of a tick infestation occurring inside is bleak because they need humidity and decay to breed. The kind of conditions they need is unusual to find in air-conditioned indoors.

The reason why you might be able to see ticks inside the house is that there might be an infestation in your backyard. These ticks can be carried inside on your pet’s coats or your own clothes.

Doing the following things will ensure that ticks do not find suitable breeding conditions in your backyard.

·    Keep your shrubs, grass, and ground well-lit by trimming them regularly and letting sunlight penetrate.

·    Use anti-tic shampoos and powders to groom your pets so that ticks can not survive on their coats.
