You Won’t Be Happy To Hear That Oregon Is Experiencing A Major Surge Of Ticks This Year
If you’ve spent much time in the outdoors, you’re probably aware of ticks. In Oregon, we have 20 different species of ticks, but only four like to feast on humans. One of those species carries Lyme disease, which has some nasty symptoms that can get serious if the disease is undetected for more than a month. Many states are gearing up for an increased number of ticks this summer, and unfortunately, Oregon is on the list. Here’s what you need to know.
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/
