Did You Know…

There’s an emerging tick-borne disease spreading across the US, and it has infectious disease experts sounding the alarm. The so-called Powassan virus, which the CDC reports is related to West Nile, is far more worrisome than Lyme disease, in that it’s transmitted within an hour and can cause meningitis and brain inflammation called encephalitis.  Originally found only in a rare-type tick, the ecology of the virus has changed—now it’s found in deer ticks. One neurologist warns that “we should be very scared of it because nobody is safe from it.”  So western states, as well as the East, are now subject to deadly Powassan.  Talk to pest control experts about making your family safe from ticks.
