Are you looking for a trusted tick control company serving The Caldwells? Mosquito Hunters™ can deliver the protection you need. We offer a fast-acting service to destroy ticks and maintain a consistent defense around your yard. Our Technicians provide property inspections, barrier treatments, and helpful tips for combating ticks and their offspring. To begin, we’d like to clear up some common myths about how to react when you’ve been bitten by a tick.
Common Tick Myths Debunked
Myth #1: Use soap to force the tick to release. Finding a tick embedded in your skin can be surprising and stressful. We understand the urge felt by many to get the tick off them as quickly as possible. However, it is essential to stay calm and react appropriately. A common assumption is that you should cover the area with some type of liquid substance to get the tick to release. In truth, doing so will only cause the tick to panic and expel more toxins into your wound.
Myth #2: Kill it with fire. Similarly, you should not use fire to remove a tick from your body. Ticks have a hard exoskeleton, which means you’ll suffer burns on your skin long before the fire has any effect on the tick.
Myth #3: All tick bites lead to Lyme disease. This common false assumption leads people to improperly take antibiotics without a prescription in hopes of treating their ‘infection.’ In reality, the tick needs to remain attached to your body for at least 36 hours in order to transmit this infection. So, if you take your time and carefully remove the creature with a pair of tweezers, you should be fine.
