Why It’s Important To Rid Your Putnam Property of Ticks
Once a tick bites you, it will swell in size due to the fact that they feed on the blood of warm-blooded animals including dogs, cats, deer and people. When it is full, it will drop off the host and repeat the cycle again at a later time.
Lyme Disease can be very dangerous to anyone who contracts it. It is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi, which is transmitted to people by the bite of infected deer ticks. There are preventative measures you can take to reduce your risk of contracting Lyme Disease including using insect repellent, landscaping and pest management, and removing ticks promptly.
