WATCH OUT! The hot weather and the recent heavy rain has brought the ticks out again.
Wouldn’t be surprised if the snakes are starting to stir as well! Check your youngsters and others at least every few days. Unfortunately you need to check everywhere as ticks like to hide in crevices such as the folds of elbows, chest and high up in the insides of the hind legs. Manes and tails are popular places too as is inside the ears.
If you are having problems with ticks try giving your youngsters Apple Cider Vinegar in their feed either plain or the one with garlic (i alternate them). Also try a 30ml/mg scoop of sulphur powder. Externally spray with barricade S (but use with extreme care – where a chemical suit and vapour mask).
