Lyme disease is an infectious illness caused by bacteria that can be spread to humans through the bite of an infected tick. This disease can cause severe and long-lasting effects, and in some cases it may even be fatal. Lyme disease is a serious public health concern, and controlling ticks can help reduce the spread of this infection.
Ticks are able to transmit Lyme disease to humans through their saliva when they bite into human skin. Once infected with the bacteria from a tick bite, a person may experience symptoms such as fever, fatigue, headache, muscle pain, joint swelling and stiffness. Other more noticeable signs include a bullseye rash at the site of the bite that may begin to appear in the first three to thirty days after the initial infection. If untreated, Lyme disease can progress and cause inflammation of joints, heart problems or neurological issues that could become permanent disabilities.
It is very important to take measures that help reduce the number of ticks in areas where people are likely to come into contact with them such as wooded or grassy areas or even backyards in urban settings. Keeping lawns trimmed short and eliminating standing water on properties where possible can also reduce tick populations. Finally, if an individual finds a tick on themselves they should use tweezers to remove it as soon as possible and contact their healthcare provider if any symptoms develop afterwards. These actions taken together will help prevent people from getting exposed to ticks infected with Lyme-causing bacteria and potentially contracting this debilitating illness.
