Tick-borne diseases are in Texas and the problem is spreading as the number of ticks increase. Warming temperatures allow ticks, and the small animals they depend on for survival, to multiply and expand geographically, thus spreading the diseases they carry.
In addition to Lyme Disease, Heartland Disease, once extremely rare in Texas, has become a concern. The Black-legged Tick, is the most common species to transmit Lyme Disease in Texas. You can check the cases reported, here.
The chance of getting bitten by a tick carrying disease in Texas is lower than other states, if you are outdoors, in recreational areas you should check for ticks. If you experience symptoms such as rash, flu like symptoms, joint or muscle pains, or swollen lymph nodes after you have been bitten by a tick, you should reach out to your doctor.
There are 80 different mosquito species in Texas. Of these, not all carry disease. Those mosquitoes that do not are called nuisance mosquitoes. The different mosquito-borne illnesses in Texas include West Nile virus, Zika virus, St. Louis Encephalitis, Dengue, and Chikungunya. You can view reported cases and monitoring of Zika and West Nile on the Department of Health website.
Mosquitoes aren’t just annoying, they can be dangerous carriers of many serious diseases. The best way to protect yourself and your family is to prevent mosquito breeding and bites. It’s important to be vigilant against mosquitoes, because they can bite day and night and live both indoors and outdoors.
While they kill the targeted bugs, conventional mosquito and tick control contain harmful chemicals can harm humans, pets, birds, fish and pollinators. These toxic chemicals can cause many problems and illnesses, from skin burns to cancer, with many others in between.
The other challenge of traditional chemicals in mosquito and tick control is pest resilience and adaptation. Over time, bugs adapt to the chemicals we use on them, making them less and less effective. Pests like mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, lice, and sand flies, and others have developed resistance to every class of pesticide.
Natural pest control is a better, more effective solution for the environment, your pets, and the people who live and work around treatment areas.
While we focus on mosquitoes and ticks, Our Houston Mosquito Control product’s main base is garlic. The oil in garlic will also help keep bunnies away from your garden while repelling slugs, aphids, whiteflies, ticks, fleas, moles, Japanese beetles and more. This works on the natural repellant instinct in the bug—it isn’t something they adapt to over time.
