Tick Control Warning
Dog and cat owners warned after Mona Vale northern beaches suburb listed as hot-spot for paralysis ticks
Summary of News item Manly Daily 20/9/2016
The top NSW suburbs for eastern paralysis ticks included a Northern Beaches suburb.
Mona Vale was listed with popular Coff’s Harbour, Port Macquarie, and Murwillumbah as the worst places for catching ticks.
This was in a tick mapping study by an animal health company called MERIAL.
At least 50 cases of paralysis had to be recorded by vets between 2010 and 2015.
Mona Vale veterinarian Dr Jenny Wingham said;
“Living in paradise comes with a cost. With lush undergrowth and foliage comes bandicoots and possums — and also ticks,”
..”at the start of the tick season, it is not unusual to see 10-15 animals in hospital at one time.
Our after-hours hospital, Northside Emergency Vetinary Service (NEVS) at Terrey Hills might see as many as 40 cases in one weekend,” Dr Wingham said.
“5-10% of the bitten animals would die.”
Signs of Tick Paralysis
In dogs and cats ranges from;
1. Stumbling and struggling to carry body weight
2. Paralysis of the airways.
3. Loss of bark or meow
4. Wobbly legs
5. Loss of appetite
7. Changes in gum colour
8. Changes in pupil size.
Dr Wingham recommended that pet owners check their cats and dogs twice daily for ticks.
Over 100 Northern Beaches residents have suffered allergic reactions to meat after paralysis tick bites. This is according to an allergy specialist Sheryl van Nunen after studying people who have been bitten by ticks.

Northern Beaches Paralysis Tick Spraying
Firstly, don’t get misled about what everyone often refer to as ‘grass ticks’, which are actually paralysis ticks (See Tick paralysis in Australia caused by Ixodes holocyclus).
We highly recommend that your property is sprayed for ticks every six months. Our pest controllers are experienced and use a dual strategy of treating foliage with a low toxic tick spray and by treating the soil with a powerful granular treatment called ‘Brigade Tick Control‘.
These parasites are similar to fleas in that they feed on the blood of animals, which also includes us! There are around 70 tick species native to Australia and 16 of these feed on humans.
How do You Get Ticks in Your Yard?
The main carriers of ticks in the Northern Beaches are possums, bandicoots, rabbits, foxes and even birds and bush turkeys. As they move around in your property they are dropping off eggs, nymphs and live mature insects. Try to physically keep these animals out of your property using fences and vermin wire, but in many cases, this is not practical.
Repelling ticks requires 2 treatments per year for the best results. For more information on tick spraying and tick control Mona Vale, please call our expert pest controllers at 0417 251 911 or email email@example.com
How to Remove Ticks
1. Don’t use conventional tweezers. You don’t want it to inject even more saliva. Use surgical tick removal tweezers to remove it safely.
2. Kill the tickk with 5 squirts of freeze spray obtained from a pharmacy. War removal aerosol cans are sutable. Spraying the cryogenic liquid onto the tick will kill it quickly.
3. Dabbing it with permethrin based cream will kiil it in about 1 to 3 hours.
4. Once it is dead, slowly remove the tick using tweezers.
5. If you are sure that you have been bitten by a tick and not feeling well or are having allergic reactions, get medical help without delay.
