How To Tame Ticks This Spring

2 Min

Ticks are active all year round, but are most common in Spring and Fall. Ticks will begin biting as soon as temperatures are consistently above 7 degrees... aka right now!

Once better weather hits across Canada, so do the ticks. Right now, ticks across the country are gearing up for a blood meal, which is required for them to stay alive and keep their clock ticking.

How To Avoid Tick Bites

  • Wear closed-toe shoes and long-sleeved clothing
  • Tuck your pants into your socks. You'll look a bit ridiculous, but it works!
  • Wear light coloured clothing to help you spot potential ticks easier
  • Wash yourself as soon as you get home to get rid of any loose ticks
  • Do a full body check on yourself, your kids, or your pets if you've come back from a tick prone area

May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month in North America - a great initiative that we at mosquito.buzz are honoured to take part in every year. Lyme disease is caused by a type of bacteria called Borrelia burgdorferi, which can be transferred to humans through the bite of an infected blacklegged tick. Ticks become infected with Lyme disease by feeding on infected wild animals such as deer, birds, and small rodents, many of which can spread throughout the country by hitching rides on the backs of migratory birds.
