As a leading tick control company in the Missouri City area, Mosquito Hunters™ provides consistent protection from these parasites. We offer a comprehensive service to eliminate colonies of ticks and put a stop to their breeding cycle. Along with our powerful barrier treatments and detailed property inspections, our friendly Technicians will offer tips about reducing your chances of tick-borne illness. Let’s start by going over some critical misconceptions about tick bites.
Common Tick Myths Debunked
Myth #1: Smother the tick. When discovering an attached tick somewhere on your body, it’s important not to panic. Many people in this situation make crucial mistakes that can make the situation worse. A common myth is that you should add some sort of substance to the attached tick to make it let go. In reality, all this will do is agitate the tick and cause it to inject more toxins into your bloodstream.
Myth #2: Destroy it with fire. Ticks have a hard exoskeleton; you do not. Attempting to burn a tick that is attached to your body will only result in scorched skin.
Myth #3: All tick bites lead to Lyme disease. There is no reason to assume you’re infected just because you’ve been bitten. In fact, it takes a day or two for the tick to infect you with Lyme disease. You should be fine if you carefully remove the tick within that timeframe with tweezers—no need to begin taking medication or worrying about Lyme disease until your doctor confirms it.
