Tick-Borne Illness Has Tripled But the CDC Refuses to Blame Climate Change tweet

Twitter users were rightly terrified by the hypothetical scenario of a delicious pastry that could also inflict a serious neurological disease, and hundreds of people promptly made their feelings known to the CDC.

The Center of Disease Control and Prevention search for a new way to warn against the threat of tick bites during the summer months has triggered a social media frenzy. "If you find a tick attached to your body, promptly remove it. Monitor your health, and if you experience fever, rash, muscle or joint aches or other symptoms, consult with your medical provider". You have a tick. Next, you'll need to identify what kind of tick you're dealing with.

Spring also brings in beauty and fun-but also, outdoor annoyances.

Use an EPA-registered tick repellent on skin.

Perform daily tick checks on yourself, children and pets.

Some people think that the CDC intentionally chose this weird imagery in order to grab people's attention and get across an important message about ticks. Pull the tick straight up, do not twist. Cleanse the area with an antiseptic. Shower soon after spending time outdoors. Put clothing into the dryer for 10 minutes on high heat.
