A Parasitic Bug Has Been Spotted In Maryland And Its Bite Can Be Deadly
Be careful out there, outdoor explorers! A few months back, we talked about how Maryland is experiencing a surge of ticks this year due to weather conditions. Now, there’s another insect that has been spotted more and more throughout the state that you should be aware of. Although the risk of being affected by these bugs is low, you should still keep your eyes peeled and try your best not to get bitten.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
