WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW COULD HURT YOU!
What’s your worst nightmare? Is it being chased and not being able to run fast enough? Maybe it’s falling continuously without being able to stop. Or maybe it’s having to worry about multiple serious mosquito borne illnesses being spread throughout your area all at the same time. While the first two may only be worrisome until you’ve woken up, the third is real possibility and not just a bad dream you can wake up from with just a pinch.
In a recent study, actually the first in over 15 years, experts examined the spread of lyme disease bearing ticks in the United States. By performing a county by county comparison, they were able to trace the increase and expansion of tick populations, which has been attributed primarily to climate changes that have resulted in temperatures and environments that continue to be directly conducive to tick life and reproduction.
