Lyme Disease is soaring in the US and has spread so fast that its epidemic in nature. Guess where ground zero is located in the US? Yes, right here in Pennsylavania.
Pennsylvania has led the nation in confirmed cases of Lyme disease for three straight years and for the first time deer ticks have been found in each of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties. No other state in the US even comes close to PA with the number of "reported" lyme cases!
As you can see, since 2005, the number of confirmed lyme cases in PA has increased by 58%. If you operate in PA, take Permethrin for ticks and Deet for other bugs with you! I cover clothing with Permethrin and spray with Deet at camp for biting critters.
