Throughout our region, ticks are a problem. Ticks, despite their tiny size, are parasites that can cause severe health issues at worst and major nuisances at best. This summer, people are flocking to the outdoors to catch a reprieve from the dark, cold winter we had, but ticks spell trouble for the outdoor living season. As much as want and deserve a summer that is unimpeded by the obstacles we’ve had over the past two years, ticks have arrived to put a damper on our enjoyment. Whether you plan to spend time gardening, relaxing, or hosting in your yard this summer, ticks will be on the lookout for you, and you need to be aware of mosquitoes in equal measure. Why is this? Well, there are a lot of reasons.
Here are some reasons for Milford tick control
- Ticks are gross. If you can imagine a blood-sucking crab, this is about as close as you’ll get to describing a tick. Unfortunately, ticks aren’t visible like crabs are. One of the things that make ticks so difficult to detect is their minuscule size and ability to latch onto their hosts for up to 10 days. As you can imagine, this is a nauseating occurrence, and many other issues can arise from a tick attaching itself to you.
- Ticks are arachnids. That’s right, these tiny creatures are in the same family as spiders! If you get the creepy crawlies from seeing spiders, just wait. Ticks are a whole lot worse because they don’t just bite and leave like a spider. If allowed to stay, ticks will remain attached for days at a time.
- Tick populations are on the rise and are found everywhere in the Northeast. These creatures are not rare in our region, and ticks are actively on the lookout for humans and animals alike to feed on. There is no escaping these arachnids, which is why tick control is essential.
- Ticks carry potentially deadly diseases for humans, pets, livestock, and wild animals. From Lyme disease (the most common tick-borne disease) to dangers like Powassan virus, ticks can cause serious illnesses and even death. In 2019, a study conducted in CT indicated that upwards of 35% of ticks carry Lyme disease. This is an astronomically high figure that is even higher in some areas, so it is critically important to stay defended against these creatures.
