Deer Ticks, also known as black-legged ticks, transmit the bacterium Lyme disease via a skin bite. The disease can be transferred by an infected deer tick, but not all ticks carry Lyme. Not all tick bites lead to the dreaded Lyme disease. The transfer bite depends on whether or not the deer tick is an infected carrier or not. The problem is that it is impossible to determine by first sight whether the tick bite was caused by an infected deer tick or a non-carrier.
This is why pest control professionals and the medical field recommend lawn and yard tick treatments in NJ to keep the tick population in check and limiting your chances of being infected.
THREAT TO HUMANS
Ticks are very tiny insects and that makes them extremely dangerous. Immature deer ticks in New Jersey are so tiny that they can be smaller than a pin head and adult deer ticks in NJ are only slightly larger. Both young and mature ticks can carry and transmit Lyme disease. Despite their name, deer ticks do not only drop off deer. Mice, cats, dogs, rabbits and other warm blooded creatures are also modes of tick transport so ticks can wind up in your yard whether or not deer are present. Mice, cats, and dogs can also bring ticks into the house and because they are so tiny they can live indoors undetected. Humans are also modes of transport for ticks. Like bed bugs, ticks are hitchhikers. Ticks grab hold of humans passing by them, work their way under clothes and attach to exposed skin for feeding. This is why it is extremely important to check your clothes and skin for ticks before returning indoors, especially your lower pants, legs and shoes.

Should I see a doctor after a tick bite?
A doctor visit is always recommended if you or a family member are experiencing a small or large rash, illness, or fever once a tick bite has taken place. Make sure that you tell your doctor that you or your family member has been bitten by a tick.
Can Lyme disease be treated?
The answer is yes. Antibiotics by mouth or intravenous can be administered by a doctor to treat Lyme disease that has been transmitted via a deer tick bite. The level of treatment depends upon the severity of the symptoms and how quickly medical treatment is administered.
Deer Tick Prevention in NJ
*Always tuck your pants into your clothes while walking through thick brush so ticks cannot find their way onto the surface of your skin.
*Apply an all-natural insect repellant to exposed skin and clothes while spending time outdoor in grassy areas.
*Perform period tick checks on your children, your pets, and yourself every few hours to make sure that no ticks have attached themselves to clothes or skin. The quicker a tick is removed from skin or clothing, the less likely an infected deer tick will transmit Lyme disease.
*Keep your grass and weeds cut as short as possible. The longer your grass, the higher ticks can climb for attachment.
