Dangers of tick infestation
Although ticks are tiny, their bites can be painful and often become itchy. Not only that but ticks are notorious for transmitting disease to both humans and animals and have the potential to cause severe rash, fevers, aches and pains, and even more serious illnesses such as Lyme disease. Once a tick has found its next host it will latch on, feeding on their blood and then breeding.
Ticks found in Victoria have been known to transmit Rickettsial Spotted Fever which can cause nausea, vomiting and fever.
