Not a Spider
Spring time in Brooklyn Park brings the lovely sounds of the organ playing at Target Field as the Twins take to the bags again. Unfortunately, it also brings with it some 8 legged creatures that are much smaller than your typical house spider. Although they are related as arachnids, their biology is very different. Spiders feed on other arachnids and insects, but ticks are looking to tap into our blood supply.
On with the Repellant
When you notice one of these small seed shaped arachnids crawling on you, your family, or in your house, remove it and smash it. If the tick has started to burrow, make sure that proper procedures are followed to remove the tick in its entirety. You do not want to leave the head embedded in the skin. When these all too common signs of tick season start to show up, make sure to wear clothing that will not allow ticks access to a hidden path up your legs. In addition, a good repellant labeled for ticks will prove beneficial.
Don’t Tolerate Consistency
Seeing one or two ticks per year is incredibly annoying, but most likely tolerable and easy to avoid major issues, but if you are encountering multiple ticks per week, you should step up the game. Ticks can ride in on animals as large as deer or as small as mice or voles. These animals passing through your yard will allow ticks to drop off and hunt for you or your pets.
