Ticks and Lyme Disease in Maine
Maine has seen an abundance of ticks this year and the result has been increased reporting about the ticks and warnings about Lyme Disease. Lyme disease is spread by ticks, and if not caught early and treated quickly, can have serious and long-lasting effects. Read a news article that provides information on Lyme disease, how to spot it, and how to prevent tick bites. See "Lyme disease threat comes back strong", Portland Press Herald, June 13, 2008.
