The United States is chock-full of pests of all shapes and sizes. However, some are worse than others, especially when they appear in great numbers. As a resident of the Northeast, you probably have a very good idea of the kinds of creatures that like to harass us as soon as we step into the outdoors. Despite the cold weather we tolerate during the winter, pests are everywhere in our region, and there is one that surpasses most in its ability to evade detection, steal blood, and deliver dangerous diseases. Of course, we are talking about ticks. Present throughout much of the United States, ticks are a concern for anyone seeking to enjoy time in the outdoors during the spring, summer, and fall. Unfortunately, many of the ticks we encounter in our part of the world can be very harmful to our wellbeing. Ticks are secretive parasites, and they will seek out sheltered places on your body upon latching onto you. This means they are often found near the armpits, in the hair, or around our nether regions. As if that weren’t nasty enough, ticks can latch on for up to 10 days, feeding on our blood as they go. The most disturbing part of a tick bite, however, is the diseases that can be transmitted.

Ticks can live for up to 3 years in the wild, and they are largely indiscriminate in what they decide to feed on, as long as the victim carries blood. Deer ticks are the most common tick variety in our region, and they often pick up dangerous diseases because of such feeding behaviors. Lyme disease in humans is becoming increasingly common in the Northeast as a result. This disease can present in a few ways, the most distinguishable sign being a target-shaped rash around the tick bite. Other signs are tough to tell from other common illnesses, with symptoms including fever, headaches, fatigue, and nausea. Chronic Lyme disease can present with pain in the joints as well trouble with memory. Rather than try to combat a disease after it has entered your body, take the affirmative action to defend against ticks before they deliver a bite.
