How Ticks tick – Ticknology:
Borreliosis bacteria (Lyme disease) live in the digestive tract of infected ticks. The tick can regurgitate these microbes at any time into it’s host, but does so especially when stressed or squeezed. As part of the normal feeding process, to keep the host’s blood flowing, the tick will usually regurgitate into its host after 8-24 hours in any case. (Bon appétit!) That explains why it is vital to remove ticks safely, quickly and correctly – without stressing the tick! And why it is vital to keep a TickCard handy! The internet is full of horror stories (see also YouTube) showing how terrible and complicated Lyme disease can be, for example see this short film trailer: “One Tick Away”.
The sensible choice to help reduce the risk of dangerous infection is: be prepared!
Being well prepared is simple: keep a TickCard in your wallet during the Summer months so there is no delay in properly removing a tick.
Ticks are wide awake and highly active from early March through to October. They are also active during mild Winters. >> See Graph and Life Cycle.
Ticks can carry dangerous microbes in their saliva and body fluids. There are many myths about how to best remove a tick. Experts recommend to remove ticks safely, quickly and correctly.
Conventional methods of removing ticks can be dangerous
- Do not squeeze, stress or burn a tick – it may regurgitate or put more saliva into you.
- Do not use petroleum jelly, oil or any chemical products before removing it.
- Never pull or twist a tick as its mouthparts may break off and remain in the skin.
