Ticks in Massachusetts Seem to Ruin Everything!

While nearly everyone is aware that we have a substantial tick infestation here in the northeastern United States, especially here in Massachusetts, you wouldn’t expect to get literally swarmed with ticks. Unfortunately, that’s precisely what happened to a local group in Boylston. When attempting to check how well the local trees were recovering from the Asian Longhorned Beetle infestation, the organizer suddenly realized that beetles weren’t their only problem. It suddenly dawned on the organizer of the nature walk that he was covered in dozens and dozens of ticks.

According to a local ABC affiliate (WCVB) article, “Dereck Lirange was planning to lead the walk on trails around the Wachusett Reservoir. He said he found 26 ticks crawling on him while checking out the mile-long route on which he was planning to take the group.” Furthermore, this frightening number of ticks is well above normal and could indicate a much larger tick population and problem this year.

While it may sound scary enough to be covered in creepy, crawling ticks, they pack a much larger issue – Lyme disease. In fact, the Boston Globe reported that nearly 8,700 people tested positive in Massachusetts last year. If the large number of ticks covered in the story by WCVB is indicative of the actual tick population, we can expect to see that number increase, more than likely.
