In the meantime, read on to learn some fast facts about ticks and see how much you know!
How much do you know about ticks?
- Ticks are not insects – they are arachnids, like spiders and scorpions.
- Ticks are most active during the warmer months of April through September. In particularly hot years, that active season can stretch even longer.
- People are not ticks’ main meal. If your yard gets visited by wildlife, there’s a good chance ticks may be hitching a ride.
- There are thousands of tick species across the world, and sixteen species of ticks have been identified in New Jersey.
- One of the most dangerous is the deer tick, also known as the black-legged tick.
- Most people that are infected with Lyme Disease get it through the bites of immature ticks called nymphs. The deer tick nymph is about the size of a poppy seed.
- According to the CDC, Lyme is the most commonly reported vector-borne illness in the United States.
- They aren’t quick. A tick may spend days attached to its host while it feeds.
- According to the CDC, you have a very low chance of getting Lyme if you can properly remove a tick within 24 hours.
- You should remove a tick with tweezers. There’s a proper way to do it. Check out this video.
- Even though Lyme Disease rates have been rising steadily (and many more cases go undiagnosed), there’s a very small chance you will get Lyme if you are bitten by an infected tick.
Even a 1-3% chance of contracting a serious illness like Lyme is frightening. But perhaps even more frightening than a tick bite is the overuse of nasty synthetic pesticides that cause harm to the environment and are dangerous for people and pets.
