    Poor thing - the german shepard I mean...
    Bill, exactly how BIG was the tick. It don't look like any I've seen b4, looks pregnant. Hehe I just fed one to my capillaris, from my maltese - highly nutrious! Fulla blood...urgh [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_t_32.gif[/img]

    Dude why would you want to get a tick? For the sake of your plants? That's too darn deranged... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] can ticks pass diseases? You better hope not...

    I think so. Some pretty grisly ones, at that.

    I don't know
    I don't know
    I have so, so many strong reservations
    Should I go and perform mutilations?

    They can pass lyme's disease which can be fatal. Be careful and I reccomend wearing pants with the cuffs tucked into your socks. The ticks will still climb on you but won't be able to bite you

    OMG!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] I almost fainted when I saw that, but...its a tick! Over a bloody CENTIMETER LONG!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] It looked like a beetle when I saw it on the wall, but as I looked closely I recognised it had the undeniably similar features of the above on the 1st post of this topics! Bloody H*ll...that is by far the biggest tick I have ever seen in my life - 1.5cm long! I didn't want to feed it to my VFT as I thought the eggs would spill out and hatch into 1000s of baby ticks, a gruesome scene indeed. Thank you to you Bill, it was your pic that helped me identify the tick, but without it I still wouldn't have mistaken it. :shivers: And to think I would have let the 'cute beetle' get away...Its eyes were red balls, and it had a black and squashy 'meaty' looking body. Hmmm, my mum tried to burn it (I'm convinced that's teh only way to take care of a tick once and for all (I remember once another of my dogs had so many ticks that we had to organise a cremation of the hundreds in a mosquito coil, sort of like a huge bonfire with us dancing around it singing tribal songs... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] But this time, my mother almost set the house on fire, starting with the bathroom, dangit...the tick escaped by falling into the loo, but I dang well hope its permanently impaled and can't lay eggs no more... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]

    That was a few days ago, but today my mum found a slighty smaller, 1cm tick about half the top section of your pinky, shoot, I would have cremated it...now I'm getting really scared, that could mean ticks in the whateva numbers with so many 00000s behind it...I don't know how we could have bred such huge ticks in our house without us finding out when they walking all over the place, must have stepped on a few at least, well I did feed a baby one to my filiformis...I suppose we have to take more powerful chemical measures next time, which is bad since my dog is about to get pregnant, after that then its war...

    Ticks can pass diseases? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] Extreme measure are in order - Ok, time to fumigate my house... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] I've been feeling a little itchy round my legs these pass few days...

    Uh oh.....you gave it blood, now it wall crave it like on [I] Little Shop of Horrors[I]!

    Our dogs here get ticks here that are 1/2 inch and above when they are "full" of blood from our dogs. We got Frontline now though, so they leave our dogs alone [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    If you really want a tick, walking through the brush is the best way to find one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    The mind is like a parachute, it only works when it's open.
