Whether you’re a human or a dog, nothing is worse than the dreaded tick latched on to your body. Ticks can transmit things such as diseases which may lead to more serious cases of anemia or even paralysis of your entire body. Ticks are parasitic creatures that feed off blood of a host. For the most part they are attracted to mammals and most commonly cling to dogs because of their warm and furry nature, plus they are always rolling around and playing in the grass, which is a dense area for ticks to populate. Also, during those spring and summer months, we have to take into consideration how often our kids are playing outside. They too roll around and play in the grass which once again greatly increases their chance of a tick latching onto their body because of the warmth their body provides.
Once the tick is locked in place it will not detach itself from the dog until its ‘meal’ is complete which may last hours or even several days. Tick-born disease usually takes several hours to transmit to a host. The sooner the tick can be removed from the animal or human the better. Obviously, the optimal idea would be for ticks to be avoided all together. This is where The Veron Company comes in!
What better way than to do it organically. The Veron Company offers a unique process to spray your surrounding property using a blend of cedar oil, which naturally repels ants, fleas, ticks and mosquitoes. We have been doing this for a number of years and it has been very successful! A few years back we became very concerned with ticks as we have three German Sheperds and little children in the family. We began to research the best way to combat this and discovered this was the safest and most successful method. This led to the creation of our organic program. We wanted the program to stress the importance of health for children and dogs but also wanted to keep the environment in mind as well when selecting the organic blend. Call The Veron Company today to get an estimate to have your property organically treated!
