On the dog. If you have unconfirmed suspicion or if there are only a few ticks, initially, you can simply remove the ticks and see what happens. If the suspicion has been confirmed, you can treat the dog with a pour-on product in the hair – the same kind that is used against fleas, alternatively, you can use flea collars or treat the dog’s fur with a powder-based pesticide for dogs. Control can also be exaggerated. Using too many products at the same time can make the dog sick. When in doubt, consult your veterinarian about the problem.
In the surrounding environment. High levels of infestation demand more drastic measures. Treat the house with a cat flea repellent combined with a bed bug repellent because the brown dog ticks virtually hide the same places as these pests and they spread in the same way.
