Warmer Weather is Finally Here, And So Are the Ticks - Is Your Family Protected?
Date:4/24/2013

Windham, Maine (PRWEB) April 24, 2013

Lyme disease is on the rise nationwide and has shown a steady increase in a number of Northeastern and Midwestern states in the past decade. Each year, thousands of people become unsuspecting hosts to ticks that transmit a cocktail of pathogens which may lead to debilitating illnesses, including Lyme Disease. 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. In support of this effort, Mainely Ticks, Inc. announces the availability of their newly configured ProTickMe kit, designed to lower the occurrence of tick-borne illnesses by correctly identifying and properly removing attached ticks.

The ProTickMe identification, removal and submission kit includes: educational brochure; magnified fine point tweezers; full color tick identification guide with proper tick removal technique; two tick submission vials; adhesive strips, alcohol and antiseptic wipes all bundled in a durable zippered nylon pouch.

"We've had a Mainely Ticks identification card for years. I can't tell you how many times we've used it to figure out if what was crawling on us was actually a deer tick," says Diane Atwood, health and wellness communicator. "I just got the ProTickMe kit and that very afternoon I found what I thought was a tick on my cat. I grabbed the special tweezers with the magnifier and sure enough it was a tick, which I was able to remove easily-and correctly, thanks to the easy to understand tick removal instructions. Many thanks to Mainely Ticks."

Now is the time to prepare for the upcoming tick season. While education and awareness are key , action is essential for a healthier 2013. The longer a deer tick is attached, the greater the chances of contracting Lyme disease and other co-infections. When it comes to tick-borne illnesses, Prevention is the Best Prescription!
