Over the past couple of years, you’ve probably become sick of all the dire news about the pandemic and other crises, so it probably won’t come as a surprise that we sit on the precipice of another health scare. Throughout the Northeast as well as in other regions of the U.S., ticks are graduating from their status as a nuisance (albeit a very disturbing one) to a full-fledged danger to human health. Numerous factors are to blame for the increasing threat that ticks pose, but the diseases they carry are what we need to pay attention to.
New Rochelle tick control is incredibly important
Based on scientific research and sampling initiatives conducted in New York, more and more ticks are testing positive for diseases like Lyme disease, which can have very serious health consequences. Estimates allow for some variability, but research indicates that up to 50% of ticks in NY are carrying Lyme disease. Such a figure is incredibly disturbing, especially when you consider that Lyme disease isn’t the only pathogen that ticks can pass on to their victims. Powassan virus, babesiosis, and others are now discovered in tick populations with higher frequency. To give you some context into the severity of these diseases, Powassan virus has a roughly 10% mortality rate in severe cases, and around 50% of cases result in persistent neurological symptoms even after being cured. Clearly, ticks are nothing to mess with.
Just like you invest in health insurance and other safeguards for your health and happiness, tick control serves a similar purpose. Larger tick populations and a greater prevalence of tick-borne disease are clear indicators that defensive measures are necessary. You and your family deserve to live your lives without fear of being infected by nefarious ticks lurking in your yard. Fortunately, professional tick control services are here to help.
