Experts warn that while most bugs die in the winter, ticks remain active and pose a growing threat as the climate warms. These bloodsucking pests are resilient to freezing temperatures and take advantage of temporary warm spells to seek hosts, including humans and pets.
The combination of abnormally warm weather and increased outdoor activities during nicer winter days contributes to a rise in tick encounters and the number of Lyme disease cases during winter months. Recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows an increase in emergency room visits for tick bites, particularly in the Northeastern United States.
While tick activity is expected to decrease during freezing temperatures, climate change exacerbates the situation. The National Climate Assessment report predicts that most areas of the U.S. will experience warmer temperatures, increasing the risk of adult ticks finding human hosts in winter.
To prevent tick bites during colder weather, experts recommend the following measures:
Thoroughly check yourself for ticks after outdoor activities.
Remaining vigilant and taking precautions is essential, as ticks can still pose a threat even in colder weather.
