What Are Ticks?
Like mosquitos, ticks suck blood, but the type of tick most likely to latch onto a vein is a deer tick. What’s more is that ticks are known to be carriers of disease-causing pathogens. Additional facts about ticks include:
● Rather than flying, dropping down from trees or jumping, ticks crawl upward.
● Ticks have been known to be active in the winter.
● Deer ticks are the only ones that transmit Lyme disease bacteria
● Using pointy tweezers is the best (and safest) way to remove ticks.
How Do I Prevent Ticks
Thankfully, you don’t have to suffer from ticks and their bites. In addition to wearing clothing that has built-in tick repellant while in wooded areas, you can also stick to the center of a trail to prevent ticks from latching onto you. DEET repellents and permethrin are also useful for tick prevention. Lastly, it’s best to avoid wooded areas that have high grass and scattered leaves.
How Serious Are Ticks
In most cases, tick bites are harmless, but you may have an allergic reaction and experience swelling, burning sensations or a rash. There’s also the chance a tick could be carrying a disease, but this is rare. What’s more is you have 24 hours to remove a tick carrying a disease before that disease is passed on to you. Be sure you give your body a thorough check after going out into your yard or in wooded areas.
