Tick Eradication Kingston
Tick Eradication in Kingston, ON
Ticks cannot jump or fly, and can be as small as a poppy seed. But don’t be fooled by their size, these blood sucking parasites can be dangerous. It is estimated that 50% of ticks carry Lyme disease, an infectious disease caused by Borrelia bacteria. Ticks travel from host to host and are capable of transmitting infections to any warm-blooded creature. Early symptoms of Lyme disease include rashes and flu-like symptoms and later symptoms include joint pain and neurological problems.
