Avoid Tick and Mosquito-Borne Illnesses

As the weather warms up, we’re starting to see ticks and mosquitoes. The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is reminding people about simple precautions they can take to avoid bites.  According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, disease cases from mosquito, tick, and flea bites have tripled in the U.S. during the 13 years from 2004 through 2016.  Reported cases from mosquito and tick bites in Illinois have increased by more than half (58%) from 2005 to 2016.  For more information, please visit the Illinois Department of Public Health.
