Warmer Weather May Mean Lyme Disease.

Believe me, we are all sick of winter.  While it has not been quite as harsh in Chicagoland this season we are all ready to shed those winter clothes and “get out of the cabin”.  It will still be a little while for we humans, but you can be sure that the bugs are more than ready to come out of their hibernation.

Infections from bug bites seem to increase every spring.  Take Lyme disease for instance.  In recent years the number of cases has doubled in Illinois.  Those nasty ticks are coming out earlier, staying longer, and inflicting more punishment.  More than half of the ticks tested in the Chicago area have been reported to carry the disease.

Lyme disease is a very serious issue.  It is not just an irritant…if untreated it can actually be deadly!  It can develop over several stages and make us sicker and sicker.  To avoid all of this make sure that ticks around your home are under control.  Contact Kurt Spurgeon of A Complete Pest Solution (630) 464-1542.  We are Chicagoland’s tick control experts.
