dog and sheep ticks with wings to fly

A WIERD TICK LIKE CREATURE

WITH WINGS!

… and boy can they fly fast!

This rather awesome looking tick was yanked off of the dogs ear!

Luckily the mutt had been treated with frontline flea and tick repellent so the tick didn’t have time to do any real damage!

I quickly threw this strange creature into a mixture of water and washing up liquid in my attempt at stopping the fly buzzing back onto the dog again

TICK LIKE CREATURE WITH WINGS CAN FLY!

I have found numerous tick like creatures with wings to fly, this one has a very noisy buzz which drives the dogs crazy when they have one on their body.

I had been removing these ticks with my bare fingers, until I took a close up photo and saw it in close up!

Now I remove the ticks with marigolds! :)

  1. this has now been identified, with many thanks to my dear friend ENMOS PHOTOGRAPHY
    who has great pleasure to tell us that this flying tick with wings is in fact
    ”Hippobosca equina (a fly in the family Hippoboscidae), commonly called Horse Louse Fly or Forest Fly”
    thanks ;)

  2. you can easily identify this ‘tick with wings to fly’ by its super speedy and quite noisy buzzing around your dog!
    the flying tick is quite difficult to catch, and i would advise putting on rubber gloves before trying to remove this flying critter from your dogs fur!
