Tick ​​on the expedition – is there anything to be afraid of?

The tick is up to date with what’s happening to him. At the beginning, it’s enough to read a bit to understand the scheme of the enemy. This arachnid has an easy and pleasant life that has no hostile needs. Immediately the question arises: why does he attack us? I do not miss advertising, but I just need blood to reproduce in the world.

What are the risks for humans?

Mainly Lyme disease and tick-borne encephalitis – what’s interesting is the ticks themselves get sick and they just communicate with the infection. There are many pleasant and easy to eat. The ticks live not only in the forest. They like parks, city lawns, glades or ferns and hazel. The temperature is not terrible for them. Mainly they are full of winter you can come across it for a whole year. Practically we will say everything in the grass as well as on trees or bushes. The opponent is difficult to detect and even without being at home every day on an expedition. During the first trip, I apply to the fact that with so many people someone “catches” an unwanted tick.

First, prevention.

Long trousers inserted into the uppers of the ankle boots, including a shirt inserted into the trousers. Most of the intruders will not get under carefully closed clothes. Another thing to deter deterrent insects and ticks, which splashes your clothes max. every few hours. Keep in mind that they can not be removed from the camera.

Ticks really like warm places with delicate skin, so they choose under observation under the knee, armpits or groin. Of course, they do not despise their backs or stomach. The faster the tick is, the less chance they get into trouble and posts.

What to do if you already have a tick?

First of all, do not panic just use your judgment. During this time, you will turn on the tick with butter as we were advised to. That is, “remove” from the smaller and larger tick, disinfectant such as Octanisept and rubber gloves and a scalpel. In connection with the varieties, small and large horticulture are required to be removed in various sizes. Sometimes the tick settles or is so blood-stained that there is a risk of breaking into two parts. In the case of a fit that everything is happening, which makes sure that we get rid of the tick completely – that’s why a scalpel will be useful. The place of the bite should be disinfected every few dozen minutes and several days of observation. After returning home, you can go to the doctor and do the research. You can also get vaccinated, but to discuss the mystery.

 

Finally, good advice. Just before the trip several times on the Internet by getting used to seeing the tick as well as him and his removal.
