TICK CONTROL ALERT FOR BARTO, PA:

Barto is an unincorporated community in the Delaware Valley, part of Berks County but neighboring Montgomery County.

Barto is located in prime tick breeding country, with the West Branch Perkiomen Creek flowing through its borders. As a result, this region presents a higher-than-average risk of tick bites and Lyme disease.

TICK CONTROL ALERT FOR GERMANIA PARK, NJ:

Deep within the Pine Barrens, Germania Park Township is part of Egg Harbor city, and considered worthy of an ‘Aspenn Alert’ due to its elevated risk of Lyme disease.

Because of the proximity to the Pine Barrens, the number of wild deer and disease-carrying ticks in Germania Park is higher than average. So too is the rate of Lyme disease in the township, which has actually given rise to a number of ‘Lyme Literate’ doctors opening practices there.

Designated a “growth area” by the New Jersey Pinelands Commission, a significant number of new homes are being built in Germania Park, and wildlife is being uprooted and disrupted to accommodate this. This increases the chances of ticks, or small mammals carrying ticks, ending up in people’s back yards and gardens.

  • Risk Factor: Ixodes Scapularis ticks carrying b. burgdorferi (Lyme disease) and babesia microti (bebesiosis) bacterium.
  • Additional Risks: Because of the number of new homes being built, wild deer are particularly mobile in the township, and the distribution of disease-carrying ticks reflects this.

Recommendations:...
