Are Ticks Dangerous?
In the United States, there are 90 species of ticks—a handful of
which can carry and transmit harmful diseases. Ticks are able to spread
diseases through their bites. They pass along bacteria, parasites, and
viruses—most of which result in flu-like symptoms. Diseases caused
by ticks include Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis, Heartland virus, Colorado
tick fever, Babesiosis, and more.
Signs of a tick-borne disease include:
- Neck stiffness
- A red spot or rash near the bite site
- Sore joints or muscles
- Swollen lymph nodes
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, first seek medical attention.
Then, call the professionals at proof. pest control. Our highly trained
pest control team will provide a thorough, complimentary inspection of your home and
a detailed treatment plan.
What Should I Do if I Find a Tick in My Home?
The absolute best thing to do if you find a tick in your home is to pick
it up with toilet paper and flush it down the toilet. This is because
their bodies are quite hard, which means they are likely to survive being
stepped on. You don’t want to run the risk of failing to kill a
tick and allowing it to latch onto you or your beloved pets.
If you find one biting you, don’t use your fingers to try and remove
it. Use a pair of tweezers to remove the tick and then flush it down the commode.
Once you are safe, we recommend calling in a team of experts to inspect
your home. While tick infestations are rare, we want to do everything
we can to be sure you are out of harm's way.
