Public Health Advisory
Posted by Katherine Noland on Dec 11, 2012 - 3:04:10 PM

SANTA MONICA—The Los Angeles County West Vector & Vector-Borne Disease Control District has issued a public health advisory regarding Lyme disease and ticks in the Los Angeles County.

Tick


It has been recommended that residents and visitors in the region inform themselves of the potential risks associated with getting bitten by the western, blacklegged ticks commonly found in the Santa Monica Mountains, Palos Verdes Peninsula, and other rural areas. While most active through late November and May, these insects pose the threat of transmitting Lyme disease, a bacterial infection that occurs when bitten.

 

Attached to the advisory are brochures that explain the risks involved in more detail, titled “Biting and Stinging Insects” and “Pocket Identification Guide to Biting and Stinging Insects.” These brochures discuss information about vectors and vector-borne diseases such as ticks and Lyme disease, Africanized Honey Bees, mosquitoes, West Nile virus, and red imported fire ants.
