Protect your health from increasing tick populations. In Tom’s River, New Jersey, whether you’re hiking in the woods or wandering around your own property, being on the lookout for ticks is important. These biting pests can cause Lyme disease, an illness that requires prompt treatment to avoid serious complications.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently stated that there has been a sharp increase in the number of ticks found in the U.S. In fact, these insect pests are now found in roughly half of all counties throughout our country.
Warmer temperatures, an increase in deer populations that carry ticks and higher rainfall amounts are all possible factors that have led to this increase. The rise in tick populations has occurred in the past 20 years and is not expected to slow.
NJ homeowners should know how to identify ticks and learn how to prevent being bitten by them. Otherwise, they can be at risk of getting Lyme disease, which causes headaches and flu-like symptoms.
As the disease gets worse when left untreated, it can cause memory problems, brain inflammation and other serious health issues. The good news is Allison Pest Control, your local Tom’s River pest control professionals, have the means to eliminate these pests.
