If the temperatures are warmer again and the lush Green is enticing to anywhere to Outdoor activities, go into Position to wait for their next host: ticks.
That summer also means that ticks the time, there’s no way to dismiss it out of Hand – just as little as the fact that you should tick bypass stitches for health reasons as much as possible.
In addition, some of the myths, however, the parasites that have to do with reality, nothing more.
The online magazine ‘Buten un binnen’ has collected some of them. Here are the five most well-known come:
1. Ticks fall from trees
Ticks do not fall from trees nor do they jump their host. Instead, you crawl grasses or Branches high and can be Stripping.
Clothes offers, in this respect, the extent of protection, as the stripped tick searches on this then in vain for a skin area for grooving.
2. Tick bite
No, ticks do not bite, but they sting.
A Stechapparat that consists of two Parts: A cutting tool (Cheliseren), and a proboscis (Hypostome) you will be provided with barbs, which make it difficult to Remove the tick.
First of all, the tick on a cutter with the cutting tool, the skin and then prick with the proboscis to suck the blood.
3. Ticks do not need to be removed, but will fall off by itself
That’s only half of it.
If the tick’s blood has tanked, swells your body. At a certain point, the volume of your body is actually so big that it falls off easily.
This, however, can take up to eleven days – plenty of time so that the tick in the body can locks.
You should not risk so better and the tick is rather removed as quickly as possible. Because the faster it is removed, the lower the risk of disease transmission is.
4. Tick you have to turn when you Remove out
Not true, because ticks have no “thread”, but only a Stechapparat with barbs.
You can so easily be pulled with a pair of tweezers, tick removal card, or a Similar out.
Against the barbs of the Stechrüssels arrive, you need to spend only a little force and patience, until the animal releases all the way out. Basically, you should be controlled and slowly in the case of the tick removal procedure.
5. The head gets stuck, this increases the risk of infection
This is actually wrong in two ways.
First, what remains in the case of an uncontrolled removal sometimes is not the head, but in General, the tool apparatus with the barbs.
Secondly, this alone is no risk of disease transmission. Because it requires the production of saliva of the tick, which was prevented by the pull of the blood cleaner.
