Summer is too short. It’s a simple truth. All year long we say, “When summer gets here we’ll do…,” or “Next summer I’m going to…,” and when it finally gets here, it seems to pass by with lightning speed. Don’t believe me? Just ask any teacher or student and they’ll tell you that summer goes way, way, waaayyy too fast! Knowing that it’s going to go by fast and that your free moments and days will be jam packed with activities that are summer specific, the last thing you want to deal with is summer pests.
Here in Tennessee, the three pests that take the leading role in summer are ticks, mosquitoes, and stinging insects. None of these pests should be ignored, tolerated, or forgotten about by any of us. Here are some major reasons why you shouldn’t just ignore them at your Tennessee home or business:
Mosquitoes and ticks transmit many diseases like Zika, West Nile, Encephalitis, yellow fever, dog heartworm, chikungunya, malaria, Lyme, tularemia, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and much more. Some of these can be fatal and many of them are painful and can cause lifelong medical issues or disabilities.
Stinging insects can cause a severe allergic reaction in some people when they are stung. When a person that is allergic to stinging insects is stung, an anaphylactic reaction that has multiple levels of symptoms can happen. The Mayo Clinic has a full listing of possible signs of an allergic reaction and the appropriate steps to take here.
Even if the mosquito bite, stinging insect sting, or tick bite doesn’t cause an allergic reaction or spread a disease or virus to you or your loved ones, the bite site can be quite painful, irritated, and itchy. No one likes to be bitten or stung by insects, ever.
