Common Tick Myths Debunked
Our tick control is a very effective solution to remove ticks from your home and prevent serious issues. However, ticks are abundant throughout the region, so they’re always a threat whenever you venture outdoors. If you do find one of these arachnids attached to your body, the important thing is not to panic. Here are three common myths about how to respond to a tick bite:
- Use a substance or even fire to destroy the tick. Do not use soap, petroleum jelly, fire, or anything else on an attached tick. Doing so will only inflict pain on yourself while provoking the tick to release more toxins into the bite. It takes a while for Lyme disease to set in, so you have plenty of time to calmly remove the tick with a pair of tweezers. Make sure to get the entire body and destroy it upon removal.
- Take antibiotics immediately without consulting a doctor. Many assume that a tick bite means you should automatically start taking antibiotics. This is completely false, as you should only take antibiotics prescribed by your doctor.
- Test the tick. There is no need to take the tick to a lab to be tested for Lyme disease. Even if you can confirm that the tick is a carrier, this will not indicate whether or not the bite infected you. If you believe you may be infected, consult your doctor and get tested.
