Are you making plans for this summer? There are a lot of activities to look forward to with warm weather on the horizon, and spending lots of time in the outdoors is at the top of many of our lists. We are blessed with great weather come the summer months, and it feels like a great relief when winter finally subsides. Sun and warm breezes signal the best weather of the year, but these elements also indicate something insidious. As soon as temperatures consistently stay above freezing, ticks will begin to reemerge, eagerly awaiting a blood meal from an unsuspecting victim. With all the information dumps we see on the news these days, it can be easy to lose track of other things you should be aware of, and ticks are one of these. Lurking in the shadows, the long grass, and other areas of your yard, ticks are parasites that lie in wait for an easy meal. Unlike their blood-sucking counterparts, mosquitoes, ticks deliver bites that are painless and are far more likely to transmit pathogens like Lyme disease.
Stamford tick control is vital this summer
How is this possible? Ticks live relatively long lives, usually up to 3 years. During that time, they go from victim to victim and pick up diseases along the way. And, once they latch onto you, they can stay embedded in your skin for up to 10 days. Such behavior lends itself to a disturbing ability to pass diseases along, and this trait is shared by many tick species. That’s right. There are numerous tick species capable of spreading diseases to humans and animals alike. Of particular concern in our region is the deer tick, which is largely responsible for the spread of Lyme disease in our part of the United States. Several other species of tick can transmit disease to us, but one was only recently discovered to share this characteristic. The Asian longhorn tick has been identified in Connecticut, and while this arachnid was not believed to bite humans at first, it is now known to bite us and pass along Rocky Mountain spotted fever. This disease can have severe health consequences, which is why tick control is so important.
