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.
