The Growing Concern: Lyme Disease in Ottawa
Lyme disease, a bacterial infection transmitted by black-legged ticks, has become more prevalent in the Ottawa area over the past several years. The symptoms can range from mild to severe, and if left untreated, may lead to long-term complications. Early detection is crucial, but the best course of action is prevention. By keeping fleas and ticks at bay, you can significantly reduce the risk of Lyme disease in your home and surrounding property.
Prevention: The Safest Way to Deal with Fleas and Ticks
Taking preventive measures to keep fleas and ticks away is the most effective way to protect your home and family. Here are some helpful tips:
- Keep your lawn well-maintained: Regularly mowing and trimming your grass, as well as removing leaf litter, can help reduce the presence of fleas and ticks in your yard.
- Create a barrier: Installing a mulch or gravel barrier between wooded areas and your lawn can help discourage ticks from migrating to your property.
- Protect your pets: Talk to your veterinarian about flea and tick prevention products for your pets, and ensure they are up-to-date on their treatments.
- Check for ticks regularly: After spending time outdoors, inspect yourself, your family, and your pets for ticks. Remove any ticks found immediately.
