Ticks will bite and feed on humans and some are carriers of various diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tick-borne relapsing fever and Tularemia to name a few. Symptoms vary among the different diseases, but they may include fever or chills, body aches, headaches, rashes, and nausea. These symptoms can occur in a person years after they were bitten. If you feel that you may have been bitten by a tick and develop any symptoms consult your doctor or a medical professional as soon as possible.
With Halloween just around the corner, its time for larger-than-life creepy, crawly creatures skittering across lawns, lurking in dark alleyways and dropping out of nowhere to frighten their hapless victims.
Keep on top of your pets’ pest potentials this spring and summer, by ensuring that your four-legged friends visit the vet for flea and tick prevention treatments or by purchasing effective topical drop treatments and ingested flea and tick products on the market.
