Keeping Your Family Safe from Ticks This Year

Keeping Your Family Safe from Ticks This Year

Ticks might seem small, but serious diseases lurk within these small insects, posing grave dangers to your health. Ticks thrive in warmer climates and are more prevalent between May and July. At a time when most people are thinking of sunshine, swimming, and backyard barbecues, the danger of ticks thriving in your backyard becomes more prominent.

Although an infestation of ticks does not pose a direct threat to the health of your lawn, it does raise a threat to the potential health of your family, friends, and pets who want to enjoy summer in your backyard. They hide in lawns and cause health problems like aches and pains, skin irritation, rashes, and even diseases like Lyme disease.

The first symptoms of Lyme disease, which manifest within one or two weeks after a bite, include:

  • Headaches
  • Reddish rash
  • Flu-like symptoms and achiness
  • Swollen lymph glands

Lyme disease can continue to get worse, if left untreated, and can lead to joint pain and inflammation, fatigue, neurological symptoms, heart problems, and concentration problems. The symptoms can start days after the infection spreads and can sometimes last for years.
