Our Tick Control Company in Doylestown Examines Common Tick Myths

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

Ticks can be invasive and dangerous, making knowing how to deal with ticks essential. And while there’s a lot of information out there surrounding ticks and what to do if they bite you, not all of this information can be trusted. Below, we’ll take a closer look at some common tick myths, why they should be avoided, and the steps our tick control company takes to protect Doylestown, PA, residents from these invasive pests.

Common Tick Myths

There are several common myths about ticks and how to deal with them. Let’s examine a few of them:

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

Although ticks are capable of carrying several diseases, a bite doesn’t guarantee that you’ll contract a disease. Not all ticks carry diseases, and even if a tick is a carrier, a bite doesn’t ensure transmission. In fact, only around two percent of deer tick bites result in Lyme disease transmission in high-risk areas.

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

This is a common myth, and it can be problematic because using a lighter or chemicals on your skin to try and remove ticks can lead to burns, skin irritation, and other issues. This method can also lead to ticks spitting the contents of their guts inside the wound, increasing the chance that a disease will be transmitted. For tick removal, simply grab the tick with tweezers and pull it away from your skin without twisting.

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

Although a rash can be a sign of Lyme disease, you can contract the disease without a rash forming. Rashes can also be side effects of other conditions, which is why you should see a healthcare professional if you’ve been bitten and are concerned about tick-borne disease.
