For as long as ticks and humans have been interacting, humans have tried and often failed to get ticks under control. Ticks are incredibly resilient pests. So resilient they are one of the oldest animals on planet earth! According to evolutionary biologists, ticks have been hitchhiking around the planet for roughly 300 million years. To survive for such an incomprehensibly long time means that a creature needs to be highly adaptable, and ticks fit that description to a T. Ticks are largely indiscriminate in their feeding behavior, meaning they are happy to latch onto animals ranging from snakes to humans. Unfortunately for tick bite recipients, such feeding habits are the reason why ticks can pass diseases onto their hosts.
Ticks are not sanitary creatures, which means they can become infected with diseases from their victims and pass pathogens onto their subsequent meals. Although tick-borne diseases showed up infrequently in the past, times are changing. Ticks are more prevalent than ever, and so are instances of tick-borne diseases. According to estimates, roughly 300,000 people in the U.S. are infected with Lyme disease (the most common tick-borne disease) every year, the majority of which go undiagnosed. Although Lyme disease is curable, delayed treatment often leads to chronic illnesses that have severe health consequences. For these reasons, make sure you don’t take chances on the wrong tick control service. To help you avoid health issues and amateurish services, consult the professionals at Mosquito Squad for your tick control needs.
East Granby tick control is here to help
Living a healthy lifestyle is all about careful planning and eliminating risk, wherever it may exist. While many don’t consider tick control within the realm of healthy living, they should. Ticks are a profound risk to our health and happiness – two things that are worth protecting. In more ways than one, ticks are very different from the mosquitoes living on your property. Mosquitoes are noisy, noticeable, and oftentimes painful due to their invasive bites. In contrast, ticks are noiseless and secretive in their feeding habits. So much so that their bites don’t hurt! While you can defend ticks by wearing bug repellent with at least 30% DEET, there are better ways to defend your property with professional tick control in North Granby and East Granby.
