How to Protect Yourself From Ticks and Lyme Disease

When it comes to controlling pests, ticks should be at the top of the list. Not only are ticks creepy and a nuisance, but they can also be dangerous to humans and animals alike. I used to think that there was nothing worse or more disgusting than the idea of a blood-sucking tick being on my body, but that was before I learned about Lyme disease.

Lyme disease is an infection that is caused by bacteria passed from a tick and should be taken very seriously. Lyme disease is a multisystem inflammatory disease.

Symptoms of Lyme disease and other infections from tick bites can include, in the early days…,
● a rash
● fever
● chills
● swollen lymph nodes
If any of these symptoms are present, please contact a medical professional before things get any worse.

In later days, Lyme disease can present itself as severe joint pain, neurological problems, and in some cases, heart problems and liver inflammation.
