Ticks are one of the most-feared pests for home and business owners and are second only to mosquitoes as carriers of human disease. Among the diseases they have been known to transmit are Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tularemia, equine encephalitis, Colorado tick fever, and several forms of ehrlichiosis. In addition, they can transmit a number of livestock and pet diseases.
Tick bites are usually painless, which is why they can go unnoticed for some time. That is why regular checks of exposed skin after children and pets have been playing outside is important. The earlier a tick is caught, the easier it is to extract and identify whether it has caused an infection.
