A Bit About Ticks

Contrary to popular belief, ticks are not insects. In fact, they are members of the class Arachnida, which includes spiders, scorpions, spiders and mites.


Ticks are external parasites, also known as ectoparasites, and they live by feeding on the blood of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians. Most ticks limit their choice of hosts, while others will feed on nearly any accessible host.

Why You Want to Get Rid of Ticks

Unfortunately, ticks are efficient carriers of disease because they attach firmly when sucking blood and may go unnoticed. Ticks have been linked to a number of pathogen-induced infections such as typhus, Rocky Mountain spotted fever (which, without prompt and appropriate treatment, can be fatal), Lyme disease (with its lingering symptoms of fatigue, pain, or joint and muscle aches) and lesser known afflictions such as Q fever, tularemia, bovine anaplasmosis and tick-borne meningoencephalitis, which is an infection or inflammation of the brain.


Eliminating ticks is therefore vitally important to preventing large variety of diseases.

How to Prevent Ticks from Returning

There are any number of ways to create tick-free zones around buildings: cut back wooded areas; keep grass mowed to 3 inches or less; remove leaf litter, brush, weeds and other debris that attract ticks.


Even if you follow all these precautions, you may still need to employ a powerful agent like Sterifab. And it’s effective not only in getting rid of ticks, but also in killing bed bugs, fleas, mites, fungus and more.
