Our Tick Control Company in Toms River Examines Common Tick Myths
December 20, 2022

In addition, we also provide guidance and DIY suggestions for further protection from these dangerous arachnids. First, let’s review some common myths about how to treat a tick bite.
Common Tick Myths Debunked
Myth #1: Drown the tick in soap or some other substance. If you find a tick attached to your skin, do not apply any product to the tick. Instead, simply take a pair of tweezers and remove the entire tick. Using a liquid with the hopes of getting the tick to let go is a foolish strategy that will only cause the creature to release more of its toxin into your wound.
Myth #2: Kill it with fire. Using fire to peel off an attached tick is sure to backfire. These pests have hard exoskeletons, so your delicate skin will burn long before the flame has any effect on the tick.
Myth #3: All tick bites cause Lyme disease. This is a myth we are happy to debunk. In reality, the tick will need to stay attached to your body for over 36 hours in order to infect you with Lyme disease. This means that if you’re vigilant and notice the tick early on, you’ll have plenty of time to calmly remove it before you’re infected.
