Hiring a professional to provide tick control services is very important in safeguarding your family and pets from being bitten by a tick and potentially infected with a tick-borne illnesses. Ticks can easily attach to you and can be difficult to notice on your body. They have the potential to spread very harmful diseases such as Lyme Disease and Powassan Virus, which can actually lead to death if not treated effectively.
The Importance of Professional Tick Control Services
In recent years, the tick population has surged throughout the state of Connecticut and there have been record cases of residents being infected with the Lyme Disease virus. Research indicates that the reasons for the rise of the tick population and reported cases of Lyme Disease is due to the increase in deer population as well as more homes being constructed in heavily wooded areas. The threat has continued to be in the spotlight, due to the Powaasson Virus, which can be circulated into a person's bloodstream by contaminated ticks in less than 20 minutes after it has dug through the skin.
