Tick-Borne Disease

TICK-BORNE DISEASE

A Hidden Danger

Lyme Disease

Named after the town in Connecticut in which it was first found, Lyme disease is the most prevalent tick-borne disease in the United States, being diagnosed in all states except Hawaii. There are nearly 30,000 cases reported by the Centers for Disease Control each year. If caught early, Lyme disease responds well to a variety of antibiotics. Unfortunately, Lyme is not the easiest disease to diagnose. The telltale bull’s eye rash is only one of the many symptoms of Lyme, which also includes fever, fatigue and joint pain.

Ehrlichiosis

Although it does affect humans, ehrlichiosis is most commonly found in deer and dogs. The bacteria kills white blood cells causing headaches, fatigue and aches. Luckily, ehrlichiosis is treated with a series of antibiotics.

Quick Facts About Ticks

Quick Facts About Ticks

  • Although commonly referred to as insects, ticks are technically arachnids.
  • Ticks are classified as parasites since they all feed on the blood of host animals.
  • Tick species number in the hundreds, but only a handful typically transmits disease to humans.
  • The ticks of greatest concern in the US are the blackegged tick (also known as the deer tick in the eastern US), the Lone Star tick, and the dog tick.
  • Ticks do not jump or fly. Typically, they transfer to hosts by waiting on tall grass and crawling aboard when a mammal happens by.
  • Ticks can be active when the ground temperature is above 45 degrees Farenheit.
  • Ticks that endanger humans also choose deer hosts and are usually prevalent wherever deer are found.
  • Tick bites often go undetected because they do not hurt or itch.
  • Ticks that enter your home can live there for extended periods.
  • There are two families of ticks: hard ticks (Ixodidae) and soft ticks (Argasidae).
  • Hard ticks have three distinct life stages: larva, nymph and adult.
  • Soft ticks may go through a number of nymph stages before reaching adult status.
  • Tick larvae are not believed to carry pathogens. The pathogens are received from the host when the larvae take their first blood meal. They will not feed again until nymph stage.
  • The nymph stage is believed to be most responsible for infecting humans as nymphs are small and can more easily go undetected on the skin.
