Most people are aware of the dangers of a tick bite and the diseases these irritating pests can transmit. There are several ways to avoid problems brought about by ticks, but one must be educated on the subject in order to prevent these issues from occurring. Alternative EarthCare reveals four things you should know about ticks:

1. Ticks can be active year-round. Although commonly associated with the warmer weather of spring and summer, ticks can be active in the cold months of fall and winter as well. Once a tick becomes an adult, it will be active every year after the first frost and will remain active so long as the ground is not frozen or covered with snow.

2. Only deer ticks transmit Lyme disease. Deer ticks, also known as blacklegged ticks, sheep ticks, and Taiga ticks, are the only type of tick that can transmit Lyme disease. Other species, such as Dog ticks or Lone star ticks, do not, although they can transmit other diseases.

3. You have 24 hours between bite and infection. If you are positive you have found and removed a tick within 24 hours of being bitten, then you have not been infected. However, if you are unsure, it's best to visit a doctor immediately to treat the infection and prevent it from spreading.

4. Tick bites are 100% preventable. When taking the proper measures, tick bites can be prevented entirely. Call an organic tick spraying company to kill any existing ticks on your lawn and stop any new ones in their tracks in the safest way possible. When done properly, tick prevention can make your yard safer for the whole family.
