Little Tick, Big Problem! How To Avoid Lyme’s Disease.

Summer is around the corner and it’s a great time to enjoy outdoor activities. With summer comes ticks – and risk of Lyme disease.
The CDC estimates that about 300,000 Americans (one in 1,000) are diagnosed with Lyme disease every year. Lyme disease is a infection that is caused by bacteria that’s transmitted from a tick bite. The majority of cases of Lyme are due to a bite from a type of deer tick known as the black-legged tick. It’s the size of the head of a pin.


If you have been bitten by a tick, call your health care provider. Antibiotics may be needed to prevent Lyme disease.
