As if there weren’t enough things to worry about, COVID-19 included, the end of winter signals the return of a silent parasite whose population has exploded in recent years. Living in the Northeast comes with a lot of perks; ticks are not one of them. Our climate is steadily warming, and while it might not be noticeable at times, a few degrees can make a world of difference to creatures that are limited by cold weather. Tick populations are steadily rising due to shorter, warmer winters and long summers and falls. And, with greater tick numbers come increased prevalence of illnesses like Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases. Unfortunately, there doesn’t appear to be an end in sight for the amassing tick threat, but solutions are available to defend you against these creatures.
Tick prevention Manchester NH has never been more important
Chances are you already knew that ticks spread disease, but did you know that (in most cases) ticks take 24 – 48 hours to transmit Lyme disease to their victims? The bacteria most often responsible for the disease, Borrelia burgdorferi, doesn’t enter your bloodstream immediately, which gives you ample time to safely remove the tick. However, if noticing a tick attached to your body was easy, fewer people would contract Lyme disease. What makes tick bites so difficult to identify is that their bite is painless. Unlike mosquitoes, whose bites often result in an unpleasant pinching sensation, ticks are noiseless and secretive about their meals, and a silent threat is a dangerous one. Ticks like sheltered areas to hide their presence, so finding a tick deep in your hair or in a private area is not uncommon. It is to these areas where we need to pay close attention because a tick can stay attached to our bodies in these areas for up to 10 days. Although there are bug sprays you can apply directly to your body, this practice can be really unpleasant. Fortunately, there are tick control alternatives that don’t involve misting your skin with chemicals.
