Deaths Surging From Tick-borne Diseases-You need to become MORE Informed, Fast!

Press Release by Center for Disease Control May 1, 2018, and More News Releases...

As reported by the CDC: the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention on 5/1/18:

A total of 642,602 cases of disease caused by the bite of an infected mosquito, tick, or flea were reported in the U.S. and its territories from 2004 through 2016.

The number of reported tickborne diseases more than doubled in 13 years and accounted for more than 60 percent of all reported mosquito-borne, tickborne, and fleaborne disease cases. Diseases from ticks vary from region to region across the U.S. and those regions are expanding.

From 2004 through 2016, seven new germs spread through the bite of an infected tick were discovered or recognized in the U.S. as being able to infect people.

(*Please note: The ONLY safe and effective way to prevent getting bitten by a tick is to NOT allow ticks on you, or your pet, in the first place!

Ticks-Off is the ONLY product available that STOPS TICKS from getting onto pets. ALL other tick repellents, sprays, and poisons, allow ticks onto the pet (and into your car & home) and then hope to either repel or kill them, maybe, in at best 1-3 days. Yet in as little as ONE HOUR a disease can be contracted from a biting tick.*)

Reducing the spread of these tick-borne diseases and responding to outbreaks effectively will require additional capacity at the state and local level for tracking, diagnosing, and reporting cases; controlling mosquitoes and ticks; and preventing new infections; and for the public and private sector to develop new diagnostic and vector control tools.

“The data show that we’re seeing a steady increase and spread of tick-borne diseases,

and an accelerating trend of mosquito-borne diseases introduced from other parts of the world,” said Lyle Petersen, M.D., M.P.H., director of the Division of Vector-Borne Diseases in the CDC’s National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases. “We need to support state and local health agencies responsible for detecting and responding to these diseases and controlling the mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas that spread them.” Get the FULL governmental CDC report here…

More News:  Springfield, Mo. (KY3/KSPR) – Almost everyone has been bitten by a mosquito, tick, or flea. These insects can spread germs if it is what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) calls a “vector.” A person who gets bitten by a vector and gets sick has a vector-borne disease, like dengue, Zika, Lyme, or plague, to name a few. Watch a news release about health risks – important to understand the severity of concerns…


And in Ohio 5/15/18: Watch the increase in diseases caused by the bite of an infected mosquito, tick, or flea in the U.S. is likely due to many factors. Mosquitoes and ticks and the germs they spread are increasing in number and moving into new areas, the CDC reports.

Also, overseas travel and commerce are more common than ever before. A traveler can be infected with a mosquito-borne disease, like Zika, in one country, and then unknowingly transport it home.

Finally, new germs spread by mosquito and tick bites have been discovered and the list of nationally notifiable diseases has grown.

In New Jersey 4/25/18:  NEW JERSEY – The New Jersey Department of Agriculture is warning people to be on the lookout for a species of invasive tick.

The longhorn tick, also known as the East Asian tick, was found on a Hunterdon County farm last fall and reappeared this spring.The tick has been known to transmit diseases in other countries but no disease has been detected in the ones found in New Jersey. Officials said they don’t know how the tick ended up in Hunterdon County but a local biologist said it will likely spread quickly on animals. Watch the news video here…

In New York 5/15/18: Syracuse, N.Y. — New York state will launch a multi-pronged control plan for tick-borne diseases such as Lyme disease.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced today that state agencies will expand tick-control programs, widen efforts to educate people about tick-borne diseases, and even develop better tests for the diseases, which are difficult to diagnose.

“Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses are a major threat to the health and well-being of New Yorkers, and we are taking aggressive actions to help stop the spread of these disease,” Cuomo said in a news release.

5/2/18 CNN:   (CNN)With summer around the corner, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention experts are warning — beware the bugs!  A new report from the agency reveals that diseases transmitted through the bites of blood-feeding ticks, mosquitoes, and fleas are a “growing public health problem” in the United States.

5/2/18: Lyme Disease is Spreading Fast:  If you’re spending time outdoors in America during the warmer months, there’s an increasing risk you’ll be infected with a disease spread by insects or ticks.

“It’s very important that the public is very aware that these are more than summertime nuisances,” said Lyle Petersen, an author on the report and the director of the CDC’s Division of Vector-Borne Diseases. “You can get very severe diseases from ticks and mosquitoes.”
