If you like to spend time outdoors, or if your job requires that you remain outside for a significant period, this information is for you. The weather has turned for the better this season, although the heat could dial back a bit for those of us who need to labor under the hot sun. The warmer months are typically the time of year when we thrive and can enjoy our time in the outdoors most, but we aren’t the only ones who enjoy the change of pace when winter subsides. The natural world springs to life this time of year, but not all these creatures are friendly. As you are likely aware, ticks are incredibly common in our region due to various factors. Our warming climate, as well as somewhat-restored habitat, means that these arachnids can breed and expand their range beyond their typical limits.
Tick control is exceedingly important this summer
For those who find themselves outdoors frequently, this is bad news. Ticks are one of the most common parasites you’ll have a chance of encountering daily, and they are very good at what they do. Commonly found in grasses and shrubbery, ticks will lie in wait for an unsuspecting victim to pass by. Upon latching onto their host, ticks will deliver a painless bite and will attempt to burrow into the host’s skin, where the tick can remain for up to ten days. What is concerning about this feeding behavior is that Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases require some time to transmit to hosts. Thus, people who are found outside for enjoyment or employment are at a much higher risk of contracting Lyme disease. Farmers are at an elevated level of danger as they spend much of their time outside on their properties. Despite the high level of tick exposure in our state, awareness levels are surprisingly low. It might seem like a lost cause to try and defend against ticks on your own, which is why we offer professional tick control that is proven to deliver outstanding results.
