Our Tick Control Company in Louisville Examines Common Tick Myths

Tick found by Mosquito Hunters provided Tick Control Company in Louisville

Ticks are some of the most troublesome pests to have around. Not only are they capable of latching onto your skin and giving you irritating bites, but they can also transmit a handful of dangerous diseases to you and your pets. There’s a ton of information available regarding ticks, getting them off your skin, and what to do when you’re bitten. However, not all of this information can be trusted. Below, we’ll examine some common tick myths, why this information is inaccurate, and how our tick control company fights these pests in the Louisville, KY, area.

Common Tick Myths

There are several tick myths out there. Let’s examine a few of the most common:

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

While this is technically true, it can be misleading in practice. While you can test a tick for Lyme Disease, it won’t tell you whether it actually transmitted the disease to you. Also, if you were exposed to multiple ticks, a single negative test won’t give you the information you need. If you’re concerned that you’ve contracted Lyme Disease from a tick, visit a healthcare professional instead of relying on tick testing.

2. Burning a tick will kill it.

There are several supposed methods for removing ticks, with burning them being one of the most common. However, ticks have hardened exoskeletons, and you don’t. Attempting to burn a tick off can damage your skin more than the actual tick.

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

Taking antibiotics that are not prescribed to you is never a good idea, and it can even lead to health risks by making prescribed antibiotics less effective in the future. If a tick bites you, make sure to visit a medical professional.
