Wells, Maine (May 4, 2011) - Lyme disease is on the rise nationwide and has increased tenfold in a number of Northeastern states in the past decade. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), children ages 5-14 have the highest incidence of Lyme disease in the United States. It's no coincidence that the next three months will be the peak season for contracting tick-borne illness including Lyme disease, as people and pets will be spending more time outdoors in proximity to the tiny nymph deer tick and become unsuspecting hosts. Increasing awareness about the severity of tick-borne diseases and simple steps for preventing exposure to ticks are key to reversing this negative health trend.
