Tick Prevention in Southern Hampton Roads

tick on a leafTicks can carry the pathogens for ten human diseases and spread illnesses such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Anaplasmosis, which can cause fever, headache, chills, and muscle aches. Ticks are among the most efficient carriers of disease because they attach firmly when sucking blood, feed slowly, and may go unnoticed for a considerable amount of time while feeding.

Importance of Prevention

Pet owners and parents alike are concerned with tick prevention in Southern Hampton Roads because a tick bite can have serious implications for children and pets. Five of the ten diseases ticks transmit to humans can be transmitted to pets. That is why keeping everyone (furry or not) around your household tick-free is important.

Ticks cannot jump or fly. They can only crawl. They wait for host animals from the tips of grasses and shrubs. When brushed by a moving animal or person, they quickly let go of the vegetation and climb onto the host. To avoid this, use prevention methods to keep ticks out of your yard in the first place.
