Tick Season Is Coming: They’ll bug you this spring!

Tuesday, May 22, 2012 | Mid-Cities Pest Control

Because of the extra-mild winter this year, early spring could bring an unwelcome guest: the tick. Be warned: The warmer weather is good news for people and pets who want to be outside, but beware of an uptick of the hard-to-detect pest. The basic reason is that the eggs will hatch sooner. “Eggs are already in the ground, but this time is the time that they will be coming out in great numbers,” said Pollie Rueda, an entomologist stationed at the Smithsonian and Walter Reed Army institute of Research.

Did You Know … that tick season is from May through August, but with 70-degree temperatures in some places, the ticks may
get a jump on the season ?

The big concern for humans, according to the CDC, is that most tick infections occur during the “nymph” stage. Those recently hatched ticks are the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Because they are essentially invisible, preying on a host can easily go undetected.

Think of Ticks As the Arachnid Form of Vampires

Since 1992, the cases of Lymes disease have doubled, according to the CDC, and more than 21,000 cases are reported every year.
