In Maine, ticks are on the increase and you should take precautions when you go for a jaunt in the woods. Cover exposed skin and, it's recommended that you check yourself for the critters once you're inside to make sure none have attached themselves to you.
I HATE TICKS! So this did nothing to make me feel better. The Northeast may have just escaped one of the coldest and snowiest winters to date, but that still will not reduce the risk of Lyme disease or other tick-borne illnesses.
I have a friend and her mom has been sick for a few weeks. She was fine one day and within a few days she was in the ICU, she received the best of medical care and she passed away last week. It took less than two months. What caused all of this? A tick-borne disease called Powassan virus. This was Maine’s first documented case in about a decade.
The idea of ticks is gross enough, but the fact they are not just gross they can make you very sick, is very scary to me. Now I read that Lyme disease is about 10 times more common than previously reported. What?
I HATE ticks. They are disgusting little blood suckers. I have human friends who suffer from the effects of Lyme disease. It was a tick with Lyme that infected my old dog, CoffeeDog. I put CoffeeDog to sleep in 2006 because of Lyme related issues. In my book, ticks are gross. But they bring more than just Lyme.
That is one gross picture of those nasty little blood suckers. I have shared how much I HATE ticks and how they scare me. It is time to take on some facts about Lyme disease. How can we leave the house and protect ourselves, our families and pets.
