What Homeowners Should Know About Ticks

Posted in: Ticks,

If there is one thing that is nice about frigid cold winter months, it is that we don't have to worry too much about bugs. Mosquitoes are gone, horse flies don't plague us, and ticks are the last thing on our minds. Once spring and summer roll around again, it is time to be aware of steps we can take to reduce our chances of being stung or bitten. But, before we talk about that, let's explore why populations of ticks increase in the warmer months.

Why Tick Dangers Should Be Taken Seriously

Posted in: Ticks,

Ticks are one of the few pests that are associated with lifelong medical issues. While a black widow spider may cause you intense pain and send you to the hospital for a bit, it is only for a night. Once the threat has passed, you can leave it behind you. When rodents invade your home, they can leave illness-causing pathogens until you finally call an exterminator and get rid of these pests. But, once they're gone, they're gone. When ticks bite, it isn't tormenting at all. In fact, you're not likely to even know that you've been bitten--and that isn't a good thing. Illnesses, like Lyme disease, can stay in your body for the rest of your life. And chronic symptoms of Lyme diseases are often mistaken for other serious illnesses such as fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, ALS, Parkinson's disease, depression, and Alzheimer's. This is not a disease you want to have misdiagnosed.
