The summer is the ideal season to spend time outside. Unfortunately, there are insects out there ready to prey on any unsuspecting soul. Their bites not only cause itching and irritation, a major distraction from your fun activities, but they are also hazardous to your long term health, especially if you don’t address them immediately.
Of all the insects to become active in Spring, few are as dangerous as ticks. Ticks are mostly known for carrying and transmitting Lyme disease, though they actually can infect humans and pets with several different, debilitating diseases.
Each year hundreds of thousands of people are effected by Lyme disease, a chronic illness that phantoms any number of other diseases and conditions. According to the CDC, Lyme disease is the fastest growing vector-borne, infectious disease in the United States.
