6 natural remedies to get rid of ticks permanently

It is essential to prevent ticks from infecting our animals, for their health and well-being, but also to prevent them from attaching to people and causing various problems.

Why is it important to get rid of ticks? Ticks are small insects related to spiders, mites and scorpions and, in addition to being unsightly, they can also cause various diseases. 

These blood-sucking arthropods can often be found in our garden, in the fur of our animals and in that of country animals such as horses and cows, and there they find the ideal environment to survive and propagate.

Not all ticks transmit infections, but it is very important to know that when a tick transmits disease,  the risk of infection increases as this parasite remains attached to the skin.

Below we provide you with 6 natural remedies to get rid of ticks permanently.
