Have you started to get ready for summer? If you’re like us, outdoor living is beckoning after the cold winter we experience, and we simply can’t wait. We are fortunate to live in a part of the world with such marvelous summers, so we must enjoy nature as much as possible this season! One thing to keep in mind is how safe your outdoor living experience is. When we ask this question of our customers, they usually respond with incredulity. After all, what should you have to worry about in your backyard? The answer is a small creature causing some incredibly large issues. Ticks are incredibly tiny parasites that latch onto their victims to steal a blood meal from the unsuspecting host. Unfortunately, ticks target animals and humans alike, meaning we’re on the menu this summer. Normally, receiving a bug bite wouldn’t be reason for an elevated level of concern, but ticks are different.
New City tick control is of paramount importance
Despite their tiny size, ticks are a huge health issue as they can transmit various diseases to their hosts. The most common tick-borne disease is Lyme disease, which infects around 300,000 to 400,000 people every single year. Lyme disease can be incredibly dangerous for your health and happiness, and so are the other diseases they can transmit. The common perception is that catching a disease from a tick is rare, but the numbers clearly speak otherwise. Thus, it is very important to stay prepared and aware so that ticks don’t ruin your summer or your long-term health. According to forecasters, we are predicted to have a particularly warm and wet summer in the coming months, meaning ticks are going to thrive. Ticks like wet, humid environments, meaning our region is providing the perfect conditions for a tick explosion. Experts predict that the tick season is going to be particularly bad, but don’t worry too much. As dangerous as ticks are, there are highly effective tick control treatments available to you.
