When spring comes around in Maryland, it brings warmer temperatures, colorful flowers, full-shaded trees, and the chance to get outside. In addition, it also brings those annoying, blood-sucking ticks and mosquitoes. Worldwide, mosquitoes are responsible for more deaths annually than any other living creature, including humans. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the most common mosquito-borne diseases in the U.S. are the Zika virus and West Nile virus. With over 25,000 confirmed cases of Lyme disease reported in the last decade, ticks cause many problems and illnesses for both us and our beloved pets. But you don’t have to live in fear.
