How Dangerous Are Ticks?
Lyme disease remains the most widespread tick-borne disease in the US. Tick nymphs cause the most cases, largely because they are very small and their bites are painless, so people frequently don’t realize they’ve been bitten and remove the tick. Adult ticks can be carriers of lyme disease, but they are easier to spot and remove, making it less common for these ticks to transmit Lyme disease. Most experts agree that it takes approximately 24 hours for a tick to transmit the disease, but there is still risk in less than 24 hours. Lyme disease can be treated if caught early, but it can cause serious complications if left untreated.
Additionally, the same blacklegged tick that carries Lyme disease can also carry Anaplasmosis and Babesiosis pathogens in the Northeast and upper Midwest, and Powassan disease, which has been reported in northeastern states and the Great Lakes region. The American dog tick, Rocky Mountain wood tick, and brown dog tick spread the bacterial disease Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, which has been diagnosed throughout the contiguous United States. These viruses cause very serious complications and can be fatal. A single tick bite can cause multiple diseases, so even a single tick bite can be dangerous. Ticks are dangerous pests to have on your home property.
Allergies can also play a role in the danger of a tick bite. For some people and pets, any tick bite will cause a reaction that may result in pain, swelling, a rash, and a burning sensation. In addition, dogs and other pets can catch tick-borne diseases if they get bit by a pest. In people, these are just some symptoms of tick-borne illness.
Protect Yourself and Your Family
Unlike mosquitoes, ticks aren’t insects but arachnids. These tiny, eight-legged parasites can hitch a ride on the back of almost any wandering animal; you don’t want them to land in your yard and start calling it home. Especially because ticks are known carriers of serious – and sometimes deadly – diseases,. Tick control services are essential to protect you, your family, and pets. Yard treatment for ticks is more important as tick numbers and tick-borne illnesses rise. As the tick population continues to rise in record numbers, now is the time to take action.
