Lyme Disease Skyrocketing In Michigan

Check yourself when you get home!!

We all hate ticks!!!  Any dog owner knows that you have to keep them protected year round.  Those tiny bugs cause so much trouble. They are usually only 3-5 millimeters in size, and can double in size after sucking out your blood! Be careful out there as the warm weather has awaken the little devils! The tick population here in Michigan has been growing at a rapid pace over the past 17 years.

“There were fewer than 30 human cases of Lyme disease reported in Michigan in any year between 2000 and 2004. By 2009, the number had jumped to 90 reported cases. By 2013, it was 166 cases.”
