is offering information about this biting pest during the National Pest Management Association’s inaugural Tick Awareness Week
As temperatures rise across the country, many will head outside to soak up the warm weather. But before doing so, it’s important to remember that ticks will also be out and about looking for their next host as well. According to the CDC, there are approximately 476,000 new cases of Lyme disease in the U.S. each year. This May 10-16, Extermital Termite & Pest Control is working with the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) to help educate consumers about the health threats posed by ticks during the inaugural Tick Awareness Week, an observance recognized by Chase’s Calendar of Events.
“We are thrilled to participate in the first ever Tick Awareness Week,” said Terry Teague, president of Extermital Termite & Pest Control. “While ticks may be small in size, they pose a big threat to your health as they are able to transmit diseases like Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, babesiosis, anaplasmosis and others to humans. One of the best ways to avoid run-ins with ticks is to make sure your property isn’t attracting them to your home.”
To reduce the likelihood of a tick bite, Extermital Termite & Pest Control in partnership with the National Pest Management Association, recommends the following:
If you’ve been bitten by a tick, it is important to stay calm and remove the tick immediately to reduce the chances of disease transmission. If you experience any adverse symptoms after being bitten by a tick, seek medical attention immediately.
“Take care of the customers you have, and you’ll always have customers to take care of!”.
Your satisfaction is our goal. If you aren’t completely satisfied, we will work with you until you are.
Terry Teague - President of Extermital.
