Diseases Spread by Ticks, Fleas, and Mosquitoes

Parasitic pests like fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes carry a range of illnesses that can be a risk to you, your loved ones, and your furry friends. There are some precautions you can take to protect yourself from these pests, such as applying mosquito spray when going into wooded areas or wearing clothing that does offer a lot of exposed skin, but these only do so much. Worse, these pests are notorious for working their way beneath your clothing unnoticed, which makes quality tick control in Western Pennsylvania crucial. Awareness of these pests and the risks they pose is the first step to protecting your health. 

Fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes can spread all of the following diseases:

  • Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
  • Zika Virus
  • Heartworms (in pets)
  • Yellow Fever
  • STARI (Southern Tick-Associated Rash Illness)
  • Heartland Virus
  • West Nile Virus
  • Tularemia
  • Colorado Tick Fever
  • Babesiosis 
  • And more

Where Do Ticks Live?

Ticks seek habitat that makes it easy for them to find new hosts. They’ll often sit on the ends of grass or branches waiting for a person or animal to pass by for them to grab onto. You can find these insects anywhere with a lot of vegetation, but particularly at the borders of yards, under leaves, wooded areas, in the presence of mice, and around bodies of water. Be extra vigilant to look for ticks on your body after any trip outside.

How To Remove a Tick

In order to keep them out of your yard and reduce the risk of running into them, it’s important to invest in quality tick control in Western Pennsylvania. However, if you end up with a tick on you, don’t panic. To safely remove this pest without risking injury or leaving its head embedded in your skin, you can follow the CDC’s guidelines for tick removal:

  • Use a pair of tweezers to grasp the tick as close to your skin as possible.
  • Pull up with steady, even pressure.
  • Clean bite area and hands with soap or  isopropyl alcohol. 
  • Flush the tick down the toilet or bag it up in a sealed container for identification by an expert.
  • Seek medical attention if you develop a rash, fever, or other symptoms of illness in the following weeks.
