With the unseasonably warmer temperatures over the winter months, and continuing into our early spring and summer months, Penn State University and neighboring east coast universities say, insects are making their way above ground earlier than usual this year. The National News has indicated that Ticks will be a serious health issue this year. All it took was an unusual February and a winter warm spell for tiny insects causing an increasingly big problem in Pennsylvania to become active once again. TICKS – The ticks are of interest because they carry a bacteria that can cause Lyme Disease. According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 300,000 Americans are diagnosed with Lyme Disease each year, and the prevalence is rising.
