Lyme Disease Alert — Nymph season
Most cases of Lyme disease are transmitted from May through July because people acquire Lyme disease from infected nymphs which are about the size of a poppy seed. They often go unnoticed until fully engorged. See tick life cycle on doverlyme.com . Now is the time to use tick spray on clothing and skin. Always verify what sprays are recommended for safe use on cloths or skin and application to children.
