Do you like spending time outside in the spring and summer? While you and your family members enjoy the great outdoors, ticks may be there too, waiting in the brush for a bloodmeal.
Why should you be concerned about ticks? Ticks are responsible for the transmission of many diseases to both humans and animals. Of all arthropods, ticks spread the widest array of disease-causing organisms. When ticks feed on human blood they are capable of transmitting diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Tick Paralysis and more.

The potential transmission of Lyme disease is the #1 reason why tick control and prevention is a necessity for homeowners. Lyme disease is spread through the bite of the deer tick, Ixodes scapularis, which is also commonly referred to as the blacklegged tick.
Symptoms of Lyme disease include fever and a bull-eye-shaped rash. If not treated, other symptoms such as loss of muscle tone in face (Bell’s palsy), shooting pains, swelling of joints and arthritis.
Approximately, between 10-20% of patients that contract Lyme disease experience post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome where symptoms can last for months or even years in rare instances. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention listed Lyme disease as the 7th most “Nationally Notifiable Disease” in the U.S. in 2012.
