ticks - Pest Control in Holland, MI

Ticks are parasitic arachnids that are small, blood-sucking machines. They’re most attracted to people and their four-legged pets. Ticks latch onto the mammal and sucks the blood leaving a bite. This bite does not cause symptoms, but can cause allergic reactions or can pass diseases from one body to another, that can be dangerous or be deadly.

IDENTIFICATION

How to identify ticks

The most common way to identify a tick is by looking at the variations of color, size, and shape of the dorsal shield and abdomen. When ticks latch onto their victim, they start from the bottom of the leg heading upward towards the body, wandering until they find a good, particularly warm spot to feed. Bites will look like small dark spots on the body. Ticks almost always come from the outdoors, so it is important to be aware when spending time outside.

Health Concerns

Damage caused by ticks

Damage from ticks can affect the health of humans and animals. When a tick feeds, they can transmit salivary toxins which can cause paralysis. If the same tick bites an infected dog and then bites a human, it can cause Lyme disease or Rocky Mountain spotted fever in the human.
