Now that August is here, our minds are slowly drifting to the thought of fall and the cooler weather it brings. Simultaneously, we can start to wonder when the problematic insects in our region will start to vanish, but there is some bad news on this front. Due to a gradually warming climate, we are starting to see the tick and mosquito seasons extend further than usual. While mosquitoes are quite frail, they will likely persist through much of the fall before temperatures consistently drop below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Ticks, on the other hand, are very sturdy and will remain active until temperatures are freezing and they can no longer function. So, while it might seem like you can start to relax about the concept of ticks near you, think again.
Cheshire tick control will be important even through the fall
Ticks are likely here to stay for a few more months, meaning you need to stay vigilant. As you may know already, ticks are highly secretive parasites that can attach themselves to you without detection and stay there for up to 10 days. Unfortunately, a tick bite isn’t the only thing to worry about, though. Ticks are very unsanitary creatures, feeding indiscriminately on animals of all kinds, including humans. By feeding on so many kinds of blood, it would seem inevitable that they might pick up a disease, and you’d be correct in assuming so. Ticks are the main source of Lyme disease in the United States, responsible for infecting somewhere between 300,000 to 400,000 people every year. And that’s not all. They can also infect us with diseases like Powassan virus, which is pretty rare but can cause life-threatening complications. So, the moral of the story is to stay wary of areas where you might pick up a tick! For peace of mind, though, look to the experts for professional tick control.
