Our Tick Control Company in Simpsonville Examines Common Tick Myths

Ticks are some of the most harmful pests to have around due to their ability to transmit Lyme Disease and a handful of other dangerous health conditions. Because of how hazardous and invasive these pests can be, it’s important to know how to deal with them. Unfortunately, a lot of information is available, and not all of it can be trusted. Below, we’ll go through a few common tick myths, why they should be ignored, and how our tick control company protects Simpsonville, SC, residents from these harmful pests.

Common Tick Myths to Stop Believing

There’s a long list of myths surrounding ticks and what to do if they bite you. Here’s a closer look at a few of them:

1. If you’re bitten, test the tick for Lyme Disease.

While testing ticks for Lyme Disease is certainly possible, it can be a waste of time. Testing ticks only tells you if the tick has the disease, not if it’s transmitted the disease to you. And if you’ve been exposed to multiple ticks, testing just one of them tells you even less. To determine a Lyme Disease diagnosis, visit a healthcare professional instead of relying on testing ticks.

2. Using a lighter is the best way to get a tick off you.

This is a common tick myth that can quickly lead to injury. Ticks are protected by a hardened exoskeleton, but your skin doesn’t have that luxury, so attempting to burn ticks can easily lead to painful burns on your skin. This technique can also cause ticks to spit the contents of their guts into your wound, increasing the likelihood of disease transmission. To get ticks off of your skin, stick to using tweezers.

3. Take antibiotics after being bitten to avoid disease.

Taking antibiotics without a prescription is never a good idea. Taking antibiotics when they’re not needed can make them less effective in the future. If a tick bites you, visit a doctor to determine if medication is necessary.
