Help in minimizing the population of Mosquitos and Ticks
    

​   ​
Keep your yard free of containers filled with water, such as gutters, birdbaths, tires, wheelbarrows, wading pools, and swimming pool covers. Clear away ivy and decaying leaves, because mosquitoes like cool, dark places.
    
    Ticks: They like tall grass and lots of shade. Keep your lawn mowed remove leaves and other debris, and try to let as much sun into your yard as possible. Consider putting up a fence around your property to keep out deer and other large animals that can carry ticks. And don’t forget to check your pets for ticks after they have been romping in the yard    
When walking through wooded or grassy areas in the summer, wear the same clothes that ward off mosquitoes. Light-colored clothes are best, because that makes it easier to spot ticks.

Why Should the State Be Concerned About Mosquito-borne Diseases?
    

​    The incidence of MBD is on the rise across the U.S. and there is evidence that MBD virus activity is increasing in Maine.    

These important trends and indicators lead public health officials and entomologists to be mosquito-borne virus risks in the near future.
Detections of EEE virus—which were unheard of in Maine until recently—have been on the upswing over the last decade.     
Both WNV and EEE can cause encephalitis, which is sometimes fatal or can result in permanent neurologic impairment. Either outcome is very costly to the health care system.

Avoiding ticks: Tips from the CDC
​​

   ​

1.    Choose light-colored clothing so it’s easier to spot ticks; wear long sleeves and tuck your pants into your socks.
2.    Use an EPA-approved insect repellent.
3.    Check your skin and clothing for ticks and remove them promptly. Don’t miss warm, moist areas such as the ears, armpits and neck, and have someone else check your back.
4.    Wash possible tick bites with soap and water and apply an antiseptic.
5.    Keep your lawn mowed and tidy to remove tick habitat.
6.    If you spot an embedded tick, use a tick spoon or tweezers to grasp its mouth and pull it out with steady pressure. Don’t use petroleum jelly, hot matches or nail polish remover, which can increase the risk of infection.
