Any families with pets are particularly susceptible as tick will hop on for a ride into your home. This is true EVEN IF YOU TREAT YOUR PETS FOR TICKS. There are many other ways for ticks to make it into your home as well. If you or your kids spend any time in the back yard, please heed this advice.

Here are some facts that you need to know about ticks:

  1. Only deer ticks transmit Lyme disease. If you are bitten, SAVE it and get it identified. It will help to know what type of tick it is.
  2. For most tick-borne diseases, you have at least 24 hours to find and remove a feeding tick before it transmits an infection (so check for ticks often).
  3. The easiest and safest way to remove a tick is with a pointy tweezer. (do not squeeze a tick from the back end, you could inject the tick into your skin!).
  4. There is tick repellent clothing with permethrin tick repellent built in. (Search permethrin on Amazon in the clothing section.

 

There's really only one way you get a tick-transmitted disease and that's from a tick bite. Reducing tick abundance in your yard where you spend a lot of time, wearing tick repellent clothing everyday, treating pets every month with tick repellent spot-on products, getting into a habit of doing a quick body scan for attached poppy-seed sized or larger ticks, and pulling ticks off quickly and safely are all great actions for preventing tick bites. These days, ticks are more than just an annoyance. One bite can make you sick, even change your life!
