Our Tick Control Company in Mooresville Examines Common Tick Myths

Tick found by Mosquito Hunters, a Tick Control Company in Mooresville

It’s no fun having ticks around. Along with being annoying, these invasive pests can also be dangerous. However, like anything that causes concern, there’s an endless list of myths surrounding ticks, how to fight them, and what to do if you suffer a bite. Below, we’ll take a look at some of these common tick myths, why these myths are false, and how our tick control company fights these invasive pests in outdoor spaces located all over the Mooresville, NC area.

Common Tick Myths

Several tick myths commonly circulate through friends, family, and online. Here’s a closer look at some of the most popular:

1. You can test the tick that bit you for Lyme Disease.

While you can test any tick for Lyme Disease, that doesn’t tell you whether or not the tick that bit you transmitted this disease to you. Also, if you suffered more than one tick bite, the tick you tested may not be the one transmitting the disease to you. The diagnosis of Lyme Disease is best determined by seeing a healthcare professional, not by testing a tick for the disease.

2. Burning a tick will kill it.

Among all the methods for getting ticks off you, burning them is one of the most problematic. Ticks are protected by a hardened exoskeleton, but your skin isn’t, and you can burn yourself in an attempt to remove the tick. Ticks can also spit the contents of their gut onto your wound if they sense danger, increasing their chance of transmitting a disease. To remove ticks, stick to tweezers.

3. If you find a tick on your body, take antibiotics to prevent disease.

If you suffer a tick bite, see a healthcare professional. Taking potentially unnecessary antibiotics can come with health risks, like making antibiotics less effective in the future.
