Is there any way to avoid tick bites?
If I or my pet have been bitten by a tick, do I have to remove it at once?
Yes, the tick should be removed immediately, as soon as you discover it. The risk that the tick transfers infection reduces the sooner it is removed. Unlike Borrelia bacteria and Anaplasmoses, TBE virus transfers directly after the tick have bitten.
When I removed the tick a black dot remained in the skin. What is it and is it dangerous?
It happens that the mouth of the tick is so fixed to the skin that the mouth is torn loose from the tick when it is removed quickly. It does not increase the risk that you will become infected. However, you can get a small infection of the skin. Just as with a splinter, it will often come out of itself after a few days
