WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW COULD HURT YOU!

The Impending Massachusetts Tick Apocalypse Gains National Attention in Leading Women’s Magazine

Tags:

Ticks of all sizes can harbor diseaseIn Massachusetts, we are used to talking about and hearing about the predicted upcoming tick season each year. While forecasters use winter weather patterns and deer and mice populations to make their predictions, the fact remains that ticks are aplenty each season and Lyme disease continues to be a threat.

Tick Apocalypse

This year, there have been some especially bold predictions about an impending tick boom due to last year’s boom in mice populations. It has not been often tick and Lyme news has gained national attention. Thanks to a Massachusetts news station who dubbed it the “tick apocalypse,” the popular magazine Self has included a tick story in their national magazine.

We applaud the effort for widespread public awareness about ticks, tick safety, and especially the dangers of tick diseases, as the CDC maps continue to show the spread of Lyme disease each year. It could have spared many Massachusetts residents pain and agony had they known more about Lyme before it became the huge problem that it has become.

Six Common Tick-borne Diseases

Self includes in their story a general synopsis of the six most common tick-borne diseases. The information shared is invaluable to readers who could easily mistake flu-like symptoms for other illnesses. They cover the basics about the following diseases which could spread quickly if the tick apocalypse turns out to be an accurate prediction. Click each disease name to learn more:

Lyme disease

Babesiosis

Human granulocytic Anaplasmosis

Ehrlichiosis

Tularemia

Rocky Mountain spotted fever

While Lyme disease is the most prevalent tick-borne disease in Central Massachusetts, we feel strongly that awareness of all the possibilities is vital for quick diagnosis and recovery.
