Unfortunately, blacklegged ticks have become a scourge. These tiny arachnids – often smaller than a poppy seed – can infect us with Lyme disease, anaplasmosis,babesiosis, Powassan virus and more. According to the CDC, reported tick-borne disease cases have doubled since 2004, with New York second only to Pennsylvania in number of infected residents. Westchester, Long Island and the Hudson Valley are hotspots. Blacklegged ticks have been found in woody parks in most of New York City's boroughs. Reducing ticks and our contact with them is a priority. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=357396 The Greene Space The Greene Space
