Year-Round Ticks Means Rise In Lyme Disease first appeared on the Backyard Bug Patrol blog.
If you come across a bullseye shaped rash on your body and there is a possibility that you may have come into contact with ticks, then get yourself checked out immediately. For those of you that find a visible rash, you are the lucky ones, for others, many have been bitten by a tick with no clear indication that they have been, which can be a serious hazard to health.
Ottoline Bushey doesn’t know when she was bitten by the black-legged tick that gave her Lyme disease last July, but she said she’s just relieved it gave her a rash.
It’s no longer the warmer months that these disease spreading arachnids are a threat. Ticks are making themselves extremely comfortable all year round, which means Lyme disease is on the rise.
