A tick is a 2-4mm mite that takes about 5-6 hours to firmly attach itself on the thin skin of its host. After 10-14 days the tick will become fully engorged with blood, whereafter it lets go to progress the next stage in its 2-year life cycle. They live in bushy, grassy areas and crawl up their host, on whom they will try to attach. Your animals can be naturally tick-free with Cur1. Begin by spraying your pet after a bath for nuturing wellness, well-being and a lovely, fresh smell.Treat pets prior to walks for optimal, powerful and natural tick protection.
