    After my recent discovery of mites (seems to be singular thank god) I went to a part of YouTube I’d never been before....
    Ticks are undoubtedly the worlds worst arachnob...

    Horrendous. Ticks are worse than mites as they anchor themselves to their hosts.

    I think there's medication dogs and cats can take that make ticks and fleas due and drop off carried in the blood stream.

    Hopefully those guys got all their shots etc.
