Lyme Disease Prevention Begins with Proper Tick Identification and Timely Removal.
Date:3/20/2013

Windham, Maine (PRWEB) March 20, 2013

Mainely Ticks, Inc. announces the availability of their Customized Tick Identification Guide for home owners, health care professionals, veterinarians, garden centers, landscapers and anyone who spends time outdoors. With the spring months upon us, Lyme Disease and other tick-borne illnesses are on the rise in the United States. While centered in the Northeast and Upper Mid West, Lyme is prevalent in many states. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), over 30,000 confirmed and probable cases were reported in each of the last four years.

“The ID cards from Mainely Ticks provide simple, clear instructions for identifying and safely removing ticks,” said Leslie Roberts, director of marketing and communications for Southern Maine Medical Center (SMMC). “The cards are very popular because they can be tucked into a wallet, pocket or backpack for easy access when you’re enjoying outdoor activities. As part of SMMC’s focus on keeping our communities healthy, the Tick ID cards are distributed to local schools and community organizations in the spring and fall when ticks are most active. We liked being able to customize the ID cards with our logo and message.”

For those looking for a better way to protect their loved ones, colleagues, patients, customers and friends throughout the entire year, personal protection strategies, including a thorough tick check after outdoor activities, will lessen the chances of becoming an unsuspecting host for ticks seeking a blood meal. Knowing what to look for is important for tick detection. Mainely Ticks full color, mirror finish plastic tick identification guide features actual size images of the male, female, nymph and larval Deer Tick, as well as male and female Dog and Lone Star Ticks.

It's no coincidence that the majority of Lyme Disease cases are diagnosed in the months of May, June and July (usually from the bite of the tiny nymph Deer Tick) just when everyone is enjoying evening barbeques, whiffle ball games, traveling to their favorite fishing hole, playing a round of golf or out for a stroll with pets. Deer ticks are usually found in shady, moist areas including leaf litter and low ground cover that surround many homes. Suburban sprawl has led to increased encounters with tick habitat. In fact, nearly 75% of Lyme disease cases are contracted within 100 feet of the home. Now is the time to prepare for the upcoming tick season. Education and awareness are key for a healthier 2013. When it comes to tick-borne illnesses, Prevention is the best Prescription!
