Cape Cod is considered to be a "High Risk" zone for Lyme disease.
An estimated 75% of Lyme disease cases are aquired from Deer Ticks picked up during activities around the home.
Female Deer Ticks can lay 2,000 or more eggs. The Lone Star Tick, new to our area, is an aggressive species. It can attack humans and pets, and even cause a red meat allergy among other diseases.
Dog Ticks can live 2-3 years with no suitable host.
Female Mosquitos can live for a month or longer, and produce 1,000-3,000 offspring during their life.
Mosquitos are attracted to the carbon dioxide released when we breathe. Mosquitos are considered to be the deadliest "animal" on earth.
