… 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!
