Feeding If the tick feeds on an infected animal it will carry the disease and transmit it to its next host. The tick will get it from the blood and transmit it through its saliva when it bites its host. The saliva has anesthetic properties, which causes the host to not notice the bite. Most people who report tick-borne diseases say that they do not remember being bitten. This is why it’s so important for a self inspection when you have been in areas that ticks may reside during the summer months, especially April-September. Tick-borne Diseases in Arkansas There are 4 different tick-borne diseases that are in Arkansas: Rocky Mountain spotted fever is normally spread by the American Dog Tick but it can also be spread by the Brown Dog Tick.

General symptoms are: · fever    · chills    · nausea    · body aches Tularemia can affect many parts of the body. If you are bit by a tick or a fly you will most likely have an ulcer on the skin, there is also swelling of the lymph glands in the armpit or groin.

When it is introduced through contaminated food or drink its symptoms are sore throat, mouth ulcers, swollen tonsils, and swelling of the lymph glands in the neck. If air particles are breathed in that have the bacteria in them it can cause pneumonic tularemia, which is the most serious form. Its symptoms are chest pain, cough, trouble breathing and pneumonia.
