Disease From Parasites In Mount Laurel
Mosquitoes, ticks and fleas: they’re all parasites living off the blood of a host animal or human. In the Mount Laurel area, the most dangerous part of any parasite is the first bite. If that one bug has a disease, now the animal or human it’s feeding on has it too. It’s a dangerous proposition for anyone. It can be far worse for children, pets and the elderly.
This Spring has Been Wet and Above 50 Degrees. We’re Expecting a More Active Mosquito and Tick Season.
Our pets are completely defenseless against mosquitoes, ticks and fleas. Even if they do feel the sting of a bite from a mosquito, it’s unlikely your pet can do anything about it. Most ticks take hold without being noticed at all. Owners are unlikely to know whether a tick has ever been on their dog or cat. Ticks drop off before being noticed by anyone most of the time. The first sign of discomfort from a tick or mosquito bite may be sickness.Sometimes excessive scratching may alert a pet owner to something wrong.
Children use the warm summer months to explore and learn in their backyards and beyond. They frequent areas where ticks and mosquito colonies grow. Most bites from mosquitoes are harmless beyond the typical reaction such as a painful or itchy bump on the skin but reactions vary. There are three types of ticks in New Jersey that are dangerous to animals or humans. The most common is the black legged or deer tick. Thousands of cases of Lyme disease have been transferred through the bite of the tick in NJ. Be watchful for any infections, redness or other unusual signs around any bite.
Elderly parents, relatives or visitors may be compromised by medications or a weakened immune system that make bites from any parasite potentially dangerous. In those cases, a bite that would only present a slight annoyance for most may turn into an extended illness with flu-like symptoms or worse.
