Our Tick Control Company in Jacksonville Examines Common Tick Myths

As the preferred tick control company for countless residents throughout Jacksonville, Mosquito Hunters is proud to offer quick, effective, and affordable service covered by our Client Happiness Promise. Let’s cover some common myths about these dangerous arachnids to get started.

Common Tick Myths Debunked

  • Treating a bite. Some people believe that soap or petroleum jelly will help. Another myth is that you should burn the attached tick off your body. Let’s be very clear- do not do any of these things! Any substance you apply to the tick will only increase your chances of infection. If you use fire, the tick will be protected by its exoskeleton while you burn your own skin. When you notice a tick bite, the only thing to do is to calmly remove it with a pair of tweezers.
  • Preventing illness. Another common myth is that you should take antibiotics immediately after being bitten. The truth is, you should never take antibiotics unless a doctor prescribes them. If a tick bites you, seek medical attention before self-medicating.
  • Testing ticks. Some people falsely believe that if you’re bitten, you should save the tick and take it to a lab for testing. While a test of the tick can determine if it is carrying Lyme disease, this test can do nothing to identify whether or not you’ve been infected.
  • Lifelong illness. There is a misconception that Lyme disease causes lifelong illness. Fortunately, this is not the case. Most cases clear up with proper medical attention and the right prescription relatively quickly. Some instances have prolonged symptoms, but those only last up to a year.
