Because ticks are commonly found here in Bartow, this means you need tick control services.
Having ticks in your yard or on your property in Bartow, Florida is always cause for concern because of the serious health impacts that a bite can have on you, your family members, and even your pets. For this reason, you need tick control services. Ticks are part of the arachnid family and look similar to spiders, but with fewer legs. They have larger, round bodies and pincers on their fronts. They feed on blood by fastening themselves to the skin of humans and animals. Because they are so small, they can be hard to see. This is especially the case with dogs and cats, since they can hide in the fur.
While many ticks don’t carry diseases, some do, and those diseases are very serious and can even be life-threatening. Some people are allergic to tick bites, and the reaction can vary from something mild like irritation and itching to severe anaphylaxis. Other common diseases carried by ticks include Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Lyme disease, Tularemia, Babesiosis, Colorado tick fever, Ehrlichiosis, and relapsing fever. Tick paralysis can also occur after a tick bite, although it is rare.
