I am sure they are mites rather than ticks ?
If you search on the forum or Google it you will find plenty results.

Knowing which pesticides you can get hold of in your country makes advice difficult.

We use Vapona but this is not sold in many countries. Frontline is popular too but any product from a vet with fiprinol in it will work the same.

Search on the forum for mites and the entire treatment process is explained here.

Good luck.
