Get Tick Smart, Know the bug, Know the bite!
Lyme disease can be a serious illness that can be spread to humans by the bite of an infected tick. While most have not heard of this disease, Lyme is gaining attention as health officials have seen an increase in Lyme disease cases acquired within Ontario and an increase of reported cases in the United States. In Ontario, this increase is due to the tick population expanding into new areas of the province.
