Tiny Ticks Do Major Damage
It’s only about the size of a poppy seed, but the Black Legged Tick, known in Northeastern Pennsylvania as the Deer Tick, can make havoc when it infects someone with Lyme disease. Left untreated, Lyme disease can do major damage to organs including the heart and brain.
Because we live in an area where Lyme disease is prevalent, you should learn what you need to know to protect your family (and that includes pets) and yourself. The website lymedisease.org is an excellent place to start.
Using simple precautions and armed with knowledge, you can go outdoors and enjoy the beautiful countryside of Northeastern Pennsylvania safely.
