Ticks Gone Wild!

From the desk of the News Headline Editor:

News Flash: Ticks Gone Wild!

Ticks are really bad. We've had severalabove average winters and a cool but wet spring and summer, it seems to the tick population didn't suffer at all and they are out there waiting for us to get out and join them. There have been cases of Lyme's disease reported in Illinois already. It also has been reported that the disease is spreading further each year. 

We need to be careful when we go out into the woods and grassy areas where these little pests are hiding looking for a free lunch.

Below is an interesting document from the CDC on ticks. Please download and read it. It shows the symptoms of the diseases that ticks carry.
