Ticks: Tend to be a country problem, where infestations seem to be more of a problem in rough grazing, woodland areas. Ticks have a very complicated life-cycle and so are quite difficult to get rid of. Adult female ticks lay groups of eggs, which hatch to form a colony of young ticks. These attach themselves to grass stems where they wait for a host to walk by. Ticks gorge themselves on the blood of their host and takes on the appearance of a wart on the skin. Never be tempted to pick them off, as this can be very painful and often the head will remain in the host. Drop direct onto TICKS for quick release. Uses:

They make pets' lives miserable, and humans begin to itch just at the thought of them. Vets are often asked what pill, drop, dip, collar, or shampoo works the best to get rid of these persistent parasites. The answer is that there is no single method or insecticide that will completely eradicate (or at least control) a flea problem. The flea life cycle is fairly complex, and understanding the various stages will make it easier to get rid of them. Collectively, all of the species of fleas are categorized under the order name of Siphonaptera.
The cat flea, Ctenocephalides felix, is the most commonly found flea in the UK and infests cats, dogs, humans, and other mammalian and avian hosts. Fleas thrive in warm, moist environments and climates. The main flea food is blood from the host animal. Host animals are many species - cats, dogs, humans, etc. Fleas primarily utilize mammalian hosts (about 95%). Fleas can also infest avian species (about 5%). Flea saliva, like other biting skin parasites, contains an ingredient that softens, or "digests" the host's skin for easier penetration and feeding. The saliva of fleas is irritating and allergenic -- the cause of all the itching, scratching, and other signs seen with Flea Allergy Dermatitis, or FAD.
Fleas have four main stages in their life cycle: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. The total flea life cycle can range from a couple weeks to several months, depending on environmental conditions.
The eggs usually fall off of the animal into the carpet, bedding, floorboards (these must be treated regularly with suitable spray inc Flea Away), and soil. When the flea egg hatches varies -- anywhere from two days to a few weeks, depending on environmental conditions.
