ROCKLAND COUNTY AND LYME DISEASE

Dated: June 1 2015

Lyme disease is an infection caused by a type of bacteria that is carried inside deer ticks.  From May thru September, one should watch for immature ticks - about the size of a poppy seed.

To prevent tick bites, experts suggest wearing protective clothing, using insect repellant on exposed skin, bathing within two hours of returning from an outdoor activity and doing a tick check every twenty four hours.

As an example, for myself, while I am golfing at Blue Hill Golf Course in Orangeburg, or Rockland lake course in Congers, it is part of my ritual to spray with insect repellant, and not walk into the woods in search of lost golf balls. Also, jumping into the shower within two hours of playing is also a great idea.
