Our Tick Control Company in Kirkwood Examines Common Tick Myths

When it comes to dealing with tick infestations and what to do if you suffer a bite from these invasive pests, it’s essential to have the correct information. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of misinformation out there surrounding ticks. To help you separate misinformation from the truth, we’ll look at some of the most common tick myths below. We’ll also walk you through how our tick control company takes comprehensive steps to protect Kirkwood, MO, residents from these harmful pests.

Common Tick Myths

There’s a nearly endless list of tick myths out there. Here’s a look at a few of them:

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

Not all ticks carry disease, and even if you’re bitten by a tick carrying a disease, it doesn’t mean you’ve necessarily contracted it. In fact, it’s estimated that only two percent of deer tick bites actually cause Lyme disease, and they’re generally transmitted when ticks are attached to your skin between 3 – 96 hours.

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

This is a common myth that claims to help “release” the tick. This method can lead to irritation and burns and push the tick’s saliva into your wound and increase the risk of disease transmission. To remove ticks, simply grab them with tweezers and pull them without twisting.

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

Although a rash can indicate Lyme disease, you can contract it without developing a rash. Rashes can also be signs of other health issues. If you’ve been bitten and suspect a tick-borne illness, see a healthcare professional and communicate the symptoms you’ve experienced.
