In Spring and Autumn, we need to stay cautious when walking on grassy lawns or in leafy groves because it’s tick season. Ticks are small parasites that feed on the blood of larger living creatures and can be detrimental to the health of their host as they can carry various diseases. Ticks won’t suck too much blood out of their victims’ bodies, but they transmit diverse diseases.
Ticks can’t jump or fly, but instead crawl to their victims through leaves or grass. They can climb on the wall of your house, a window molding, a fence, or any other vertical surface to fall on you when you will be passing by. Ticks easily detect their prey by their smells, the vibrations they produce when they move, and the carbon dioxide they exhale.
A tick lives for up to three years, one female species lays up to 3000 eggs. Even though the parasites become especially active in Spring and Autumn, they survive at any temperature above freezing, if the humidity is 65% or more. To protect your family and pets from these blood-feeders, you should resort to ticks exterminator services.
The most common types of ticks
Lone Star Tick spread rash illness and tularemia. They are known as “three-host ticks”, which means they take a blood meal from three different victims at different stages of their development. Once they have enough blood, lone star ticks fall to the ground where their females lay eggs.
Dog ticks are harmful not only for dogs but for humans and other living creatures as well. If they bite your pet it might suffer from seizures, cough, pinkeye, swelling of legs, and joints. Timely treatment with antibiotics will save your dog, lack of treatment might lead to its demise. If you notice a tick on your pet’s skin, don’t remove it manually. You should either use a special tool or, better, take the dog to a vet. If you tear away the parasite’s body but its head remains in the animal’s skin, this might cause severe inflammation.
Blacklegged ticks are also known as deer ticks, but they don’t feed exclusively on deer’s blood. They are tiny and they spread Lyme disease to humans. If you get rid of the tick within 24 hours after it attached to you, the likelihood of infection is minimal. For other pathogens, it might take just 15 minutes to transmit to your body from a tick.
