Our Tick Control Company in Fort Thomas Examines Common Tick Myths

Tick found by Mosquito Hunters, a Tick Control Company in Fort Thomas

Having some knowledge about how to deal with ticks and what to do if you’re bitten can go a long way towards making these pests less of a threat. And while there’s a lot of information out there surrounding ticks, not all of it is accurate, and telling the difference between myth and fact is essential when it comes to dealing with these potentially dangerous pests. Below, we’ll examine some common tick myths, why you should ignore them, and how our tick control company takes steps to protect Fort Thomas, KY area residents from these pests.

Common Tick Myths

There’s a long list of different myths out there surrounding ticks and how to deal with them. Let’s take a closer look at a few of them:

1. Once ticks bite you, you’re infected with a disease.

Not all ticks are carriers of disease. And if you come in contact with a tick that’s carrying a disease, being bitten doesn’t guarantee that the disease will be transmitted. To transmit disease most ticks need to be attached to you for at least three hours, which is why it’s essential to remain diligent about checking for ticks when you’re outdoors.

2. Use chemicals or heat to get ticks off of you.

There are a ton of myths surrounding different ways to get ticks to release from your skin. However, many of these methods are risky. Using heat or chemicals to try to remove ticks can easily end in burns or skin irritation, and damaging ticks while they’re still attached to you can push their saliva further into your wound, increasing the likelihood that they’ll transmit a disease. For tick removal, stick to using tweezers.

3. If you’re infected with Lyme disease, a ring-shaped rash will form.

Although a ring-shaped rash is a common sign of Lyme disease, it’s possible for you to contract it without a rash forming. Rashes can also be signs of other health conditions, which is why you can’t make any assumptions. If you’ve been bitten by a tick and you’re concerned about tick-borne disease, make sure to visit a healthcare professional.
