Summer is full of so many bright, joyful moments, but not all is well during summers in the Northeast. Spending time outside is an essential component of warm weather, whether that simply means hanging out in the yard, or hosting a gathering with family and friends. Although this outside time has a lot of benefits, including improving mood and supporting mental health, there are health risks to outside time these days. You’re probably wondering, “What on earth do I have to fear in my own backyard?” And this is a reasonable question. Over the past decade, the Northeast has observed massive tick-population growth; a population that is threatening the health of people in neighborhoods throughout Long Island.
Ticks are traditionally seen as an unpleasant nuisance, but the threats they carry deserve far more respect and attention. Indeed, ticks are the leading cause of vector-borne infections in the country. Any organism that can carry an infectious pathogen and pass said infectious pathogen onto another organism is known as a disease vector. As the most prolific disease vector in the United States, ticks can infect animals and humans with a wide array of diseases, including Lyme disease and others. Although you can apply insect repellant directly to your skin to try and prevent bites from these arachnids, the best way to stay safe is with professional tick control measures. Keeping ticks away from you in the first place is the most reliable tick control method.
