May is National Lyme Disease Awareness Month. According to the CDC, there are approximately 30,000 cases of Lyme Disease reported each year. The warmer weather brings the greatest risk of tick bites, with most bites occurring in late spring through early summer. So, now is the time to be extra vigilant in checking yourself and your family for ticks.
JP McHale is committed to our work in eliminating the risks of Lyme and other tick-borne illnesses for our clients, as well as the communities we serve. Here are some fast facts about Lyme Disease.
What is Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease is the most common vector-borne disease caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi.
How is Lyme Disease Contracted?
It is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected black-legged ticks, also known as deer ticks. This pest is most commonly found in deeply wooded areas as well as in areas with tall grass.
