Different times of the year can yield different priorities in our busy lives, but there are a few things that you need to stay consistent with. From maintaining a healthy diet to spending time with family, some priorities should never change. Tick control should be included on such a list. Although ticks are a seasonal issue, many don’t realize that ticks remain a threat through the majority of the year, even in months we don’t expect. There is a consistent lack of awareness about the threats that ticks pose to our health, especially regarding the amount of time ticks remain active. Unlike mosquitoes, which can’t function in temperatures at or less than 50 degrees Fahrenheit, ticks are hardy creatures, capable of staying active until temperatures drop to 40 degrees or below. In a time when summer weather extends into fall further than ever, this is a concerning fact.
Cheshire tick control remains important in autumn
Falls are becoming more mellow, meaning ticks can survive for longer, even into October. Such patterns should concern us, especially knowing the kinds of diseases ticks can transmit to those they bite. In Connecticut, ticks are known to carry Lyme disease at a disturbing scale that presents a recognized public health threat. Indeed, funding for Lyme disease research is becoming increasingly important for public health entities, and for good reason. Lyme disease is the most common vector-borne disease in the U.S. and is known to cause extremely detrimental health problems in some cases. According to expert estimates, somewhere between 300,000 to 400,000 people are infected with Lyme disease every year, and trends indicate the issue could become worse in the future. We know how important it is to defend against ticks, even during the fall, which is why professional tick control is vital.
