TICK INFORMATION

Recently, ticks have become a very nasty problem on the Northern Beaches and North Shore areas. RIP Pest Management offers services that include tick spraying on the Northern Beaches on lawns and gardens giving ongoing relief to family and pets.

A life threatening meat allergy has emerged on the Northern Beaches and North Shore which is transmitted by tick bites. The red meat allergy involves beef, pork and lamb, not chicken or fish.The induced mammalian meat allergy is unusual in that the onset of the allergic reaction, which ranges from mild gastric to life threatening anaphylaxis, can occur up to 3 - 6 hours after eating meat and often many months after the tick bite. Other better known tick allergies show immediate anaphylaxis, large local rashes and swelling around the bite, paralysis in young children and pets and various infections, including so called Tick typhus, a flu type condition transmited in much the same way as a mosquito transmits malaria. There are several cases each day reported from the emergency department at Mona Vale Hospital which are tick related. The public know about allergies to bees and peanuts but by far the most common allergic reactions are due to ticks.

I believe the main reason for this increase is due to continued development across the Northern Beaches and North Shore areas which, in fact, is throughout Sydney as a whole. The more development that happens, the more land is taken away from tick carriers such as bandicoots. These animals are forced into residential blocks to feed and therefore bring the ticks with them. The ticks get blood from their carriers and hop off when finished. The ticks will survive until they need another feed of blood and if it be you, your children, your pets or another bandicoot or possum, they will attach when required. The next time a tick gets on you for blood his last meal may have been from a rat, possum, bandicoot, dog, or anything that satisfies his needs.

I have seen the increase of ticks generally across Sydney particularily over the last 5-10 years. Suburbs like St Ives, Pymble, North Turramurra and surrounding areas now have a high degree of tick activity. This will no doubt increase over time with continued housing development and social awareness of protected species.

R.I.P will protect your family and pets from the increasing dangers of ticks with their tick spraying program. Call us now, do not wait until it is too late. We have a number of clients who rely on R.I.P to keep the ticks away as they are allergic to the ticks. Our treatment will both kill and repell ticks for several months.
