Ticks Protecting What Matters

What Is A Tick?

Ticks are parasites that range in size from 3 to 5 mm in length, and their size depends on the size of their last meal. Much of their size also depends on their age and species. Ticks are known for their ability to attach to clothing, fur, or skin. Their movements are mostly carrier driven as they move with help from other beings. They don’t jump, fly, or run, and they aren’t even very fast when they move. Their life is spent waiting for a host or being to bite. You can experience a tick infestation if you live in a rural area close to wildlife, like raccoons or possums.

Signs of Infestation

There are no real signs of tick infestation other than noticing them on yourself or your pet. If you find your pet is scratching or irritated in a spot, you can search the area for ticks or bites. Ticks have to feed at every stage of life to survive. Ticks need to attach to many hosts during their life cycle. Their life cycle can last for as many as three years. However, many ticks die because they’re unable to find a host to complete their cycles.

How Serious Are Tick Bites?

According to the CDC, tick bites and associated illnesses have been on a steady increase since 2004. Because these bites have can potentially cause severe illnesses, ticks represent a serious problem. It’s important to ensure your home is adequately sealed. Many tick bites are the result of time spent in rural, wilderness settings. Like cabins, camp sites, and lodges, some dwellings may have well-established nests in areas with low traffic within the structure or nearby in the grass. In these settings, it's easy for ticks to attach to your clothing and follow you indoor. When a tick cannot find an animal host, they will bite humans to continue their life cycle.

Lime Disease

There are several species of ticks that lead to a host of viruses and infections. More than 15 illnesses can be transmitted from tick bites. One of the more serious and common tick-related diseases is Lyme Disease. It’s important to know Lyme Disease's signs because if it is not treated, it can lead to heart and nervous system problems.
