Ticks and Lyme Disease
Posted on May 11th, 2019

Submitted by Elaine Wedral

Tick-borne diseases such as Lyme disease are on the rise. Cases in the United States increased from about 12,000 annually in 1995 to nearly 40,000 in 2015, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Experts believe the real number of infections is likely closer to 300,000.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates products that are used to help diagnose and treat this complex disease in humans. There are no licensed vaccines in the United States to aid in the prevention of Lyme disease in people.

If a Bear is in the ‘hood.....
Posted on Apr 29th, 2019

If a neighborhood hears of a bear in the area, everyone should take their feeders down, and leave them down. If every single person with a bird feeder in the neighborhood doesn’t take that feeder down, then the black bear will find a reason to stay in the area.
