According to the CDC, Tennessee (along with North Carolina, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri) is home to at least 60% of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever victims. Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever is most often transmitted by the brown dog tick in Tennessee and can be fatal if not treated within the first 5 days. Victims often mistake early symptoms as flu like symptoms, therefore it is really important early detection of the insect is key.
Tick Avoidance Is Key In Not Getting Bit
First of all, the first approach to avoiding ticks is to stay out of tick-infested areas. Many people love to hike in forests where ticks and their animal hosts live. Furthermore, this sounds like common sense but sometimes people forget about the tick threat in these areas. In addition, many people tuck their socks into their pants to prevent ticks from crawling up pants legs.
To add, we also forget that our own property can contain tick populations. If your property is visited by wild animals like deer, squirrels, rabbits or other animals they can bring ticks along during their visit. The same goes for stray dogs and cats. Ticks will drop off of the animal after it feeding to wait for the next victim to come along.
Furthermore, adjust the environment on your property to reduce tick populations. Ticks will try to find high grass or scrubs to crawl up on to drop down on a potential animal host for a blood meal. If you keep your lawn and weeds mowed down and trim those shrubs back it will help to reduce tick populations.
Finally, check your pets for ticks. Your pets normally go outdoors and roam around and can come into contact with tick sitting there waiting to pounce on them. This can happen even in a fenced yard because mice and squirrels with ticks may be visiting your bird feeder. Furthermore, while you are at it check the children and yourself for ticks.
As a result, contact a professional pest control company. For more information or to schedule your tick management treatment, contact U.S. Pest Protection.
