A Closer Look At How A Tick Hooks On To You
If you enjoy hiking, you may want to do a quick body search right after that hike! El Paso has more than a few hiking spots that are filled with ticks and other creepy crawlers.
If you've ever been interested in how you transform a thin tick to a fatty, Deep Look will show you! You can see how those little suckers (literally) suck the blood right out of your body. Their microscopic bite may be small but can lead to bigger health problems in the future. They can cause Lyme disease or other things that can make us sick. Their mouth is covered in hooks that help latch on to their blood pumping victims. So if you have to remove a tick, be sure to grab close to the skin and pull it out.
Remember to do a full body search after your hike so you can avoid any kind of tick attachment!
