Are Ticks Getting Worse?
Ticks have never been as prevalent around the GTA as they have been over the past few years. Up until a few years ago, ticks were something that you’d only have to worry about up at the cottage or in the rural parts of Ontario, but in the last few years ticks are becoming more of a problem in the populated areas of the GTA. With the dangerous effects of Lyme disease – a disease that ticks can transmit – it has never been so important to protect your family and friends from ticks as it is now.

Ticks and mosquitoes are out this year in full force. And this year more than ever they’re coming down into the populated areas of the GTA. What used to only be a problem up in cottage country is now becoming more and more of a problem in the city. And with the risk of Lyme disease and now Zika virus not too far away, now is a good time to educate yourself about ticks and mosquitoes.
Ticks transmit diseases through their bite, and they bite to feed on the blood of their host. Ticks can a long time to suck enough blood to survive so over time have developed very effective feeding apparatus for hanging on tightly when they bite so they can be shaken loose easily. Like mosquitoes, ticks use a local sedative to mask any pain the host feels when it bites.
Spray the area where ticks are likely to be! But apart from that, you can wear tick proof clothing and closed toe shoes. Ticks do not jump or fly and instinctively head towards the ear and neck area of a host because that is where the blood supply is plentiful and easy to access. This doesn’t mean that you can’t get a tick bite anywhere else on your body – a tick will settle in just about anywhere if it detects a good blood supply. It’s a good idea to check your entire body if you’ve been in an area where ticks might have been – they’re pretty easy to spot with a naked eye and if detected early can be removed pretty easily.
