Must Read Lyme Disease and Tick Facts:
What is Lyme Disease? Lyme disease is a potentially serious bacterial infection that has afflicted many Americans since 1982. This disease is transmitted to people and their pets by ticks. The deer tick is the primary carrier in the East, while the western black legged tick is the primary disease vector in western states.
What are Lyme Disease symptoms? Lyme disease is often called "the great imitator" because its initial symptoms often include a large, red skin rash accompanied by "flu-like" symptoms such as fever, headache, fatigue, and pain in the muscles and joints. If left untreated, the disease may in some severe cases result in a wide variety of other symptoms including double vision, abnormal sensitivity to light, dizziness, chronic arthritis, meningitis, hearing loss, memory loss, and a loss of muscle coordination. Symptoms vary greatly depending on the severity of the infection. Fortunately, people who are treated with antibiotics during the very early stage of infection generally have a full recovery. An accurate diagnosis can only be confirmed by a physician, usually by means of a blood test.
How is Lyme Disease transmitted by ticks? Most Lyme disease transmissions occur during June, July, August and September, when peak tick populations coincide with people's highest levels of outdoor activity. Not all deer ticks carry Lyme disease. But if an infected tick bites a person or household pet, disease transmission will result. Most Lyme disease transmissions results from bites during the tick's nymph stage, in which the pin-head sized pest is extremely difficult to detect.
Where are deer ticks found? Although deer ticks are most commonly located in wooded areas with heavy undergrowth, they are also found throughout residential landscapes and even on the most carefully tended lawns. Deer ticks sense sound and vibration and migrate to those areas so they can attach to a host to feed. Deer ticks will also be transported into "clean" areas by attaching themselves to local deer, rodents, dogs, cats and birds.
