Quick facts

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE -

Lyme dis­ease is an in­flam­ma­tory in­fec­tion that spreads to hu­mans through tick bites. The best way to pre­vent in­fec­tion is to avoid tick-in­fested ar­eas when­ever pos­si­ble, par­tic­u­larly in spring and early sum­mer when nymph ticks feed. Adult ticks are a big­ger threat in fall. Ticks favour moist, shaded en­vi­ron­ments; es­pe­cially leafy wooded ar­eas and over­grown grassy habi­tats.
