The number of people infected by tick-borne diseases has nearly tripled from 2004 to 2017 in the United States

In Massachusetts in 2017 alone, over 8,000 people tested positive for Lyme disease. But most cases are not reported and it is estimated that 87,000 people a year in MA are getting Lyme disease.  

Winchester and the surrounding towns are not immune from ticks and the diseases they carry. The trails, fields, leaf litter and woods surrounding properties are ideal habitats for ticks. PREVENTION IS THE BEST DEFENSE.
