With the beginning of spring, we all want to stroll through the forest, breathe fresh air, feel the warm spring sun. But do not forget about the blood-sucking mite parasites, which are located on the soil, grass and bushes and wait for their prey.

Once the person is on the skin, the mites quickly and imperceptibly move upward, sucking the proboscis to the soft skin of the neck, head, trunk or groin. The amount of sucked blood is many times greater than the weight of the tick itself. Female swelling in size more than males.



When do the first mites appear?

As soon as the snow comes down, the first thawed patches appear, the mites already make themselves felt. At a temperature of three to six degrees in the environment, bloodsucking parasites begin to search for victims. In May-June they are very actively multiplying. Some decrease in attacks of mites is reduced by the end of July, but it is quite feasible to pick up a forest mite even in September-October!
