How to protect your family from Ticks and Mosquito borne illness

Tick-Borne Diseases Are On The Rise

Amid warming weather, a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warns of a surge in tick-borne diseases. We’ll talk about what you can do to prevent them.

More cases in the US (2004-2016)

  • The number of reported cases of disease from mosquito, tick, and flea bites has more than tripled.
  • More than 640,000 cases of these diseases were reported from 2004 to 2016.
  • Disease cases from ticks have doubled.
  • Mosquito-borne disease epidemics happen more frequently.

More germs (2004-2016)

  • Chikungunya and Zika viruses caused outbreaks in the US for the first time.
  • Seven new tickborne germs can infect people in the US.

More people at risk

  • Commerce moves mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas around the world.
  • Infected travelers can introduce and spread germs across the world.
  • Mosquitoes and ticks move germs into new areas of the US, causing more people to be at risk.

What You Can Do:

Avoid folklore remedies such as "painting" the tick with nail polish or petroleum jelly, or using heat to make the tick detach from the skin. Your goal is to remove the tick as quickly as possible–not waiting for it to detach. (Courtesy CDC)

  • Use an Environmental Protection Agency-registered insect repellent.
  • Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants.
  • Treat items, such as boots, pants, socks, and tents, with permethrin or buy permethrin-treated clothing and gear.
  • Take steps to control ticks and fleas on pets.
  • Find and remove ticks daily from family and pets.
  • Take steps to control mosquitoesticks, and fleas inside and outside your home.



Its Very Hard to choose the Rite product for your family to keep the biters at away

some popular  brands of bug sprays contain deet

Dealing with DEET

DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide), first used by the U.S. Army, has been sold to consumers since the 1950s. It can cause allergic skin reactions, particularly at concentrations of 50 percent and above, and eye irritation. A 2013 analysis of about 4,000 DEET-related calls to poison control centers found that 450 people needed medical treatment after applying DEET; two died. Most cases of seizures, slurred speech, coma and other serious side effects have occurred in people who ingested DEET or applied it for three or more days in a row, or used products with 95 percent DEET or more.

It’s unclear whether lower doses pose the same risks, especially if you follow directions. Still, our experts urge children, seniors and those with weakened immunity to use it with extra caution. The American Academy of Pediatrics says DEET shouldn’t be used on infants younger than 2 months, and Canada’s federal health department says children 6 months to 12 years old should avoid products with more than 10 percent DEET.

“Most important, people should first try safer ways of avoiding bugs,” Rangan says. She points out that in our tests, products with 30 percent or less DEET worked well. “So if you decide you really want to try DEET, stick with the lowest effective dose, and avoid those that are more than 30 percent DEET.”



Studies have shown that Picaridin is effective, safe and has fewer unpleasant qualities than DEET. Picaridin is odorless, does not melt plastics, or feel oily on skin. Studies show that Picaridin is as effective as DEET when used at the same strength. Picaridin is available in brands such as Cutter and AVON.

All of these products are available over the counter at retail and sporting goods stores, pharmacies and on-line.

I am Kim, I’m 36 years old

I remember my love of Avon products really started when i was somewhere around 11 or 12, in the 6th grade, I would sneak into my mothers makeup case and put on her eye liner and go to school, I would also wash it off when i got home from school. My Mother sold Avon and we loved when her orders came and we could smell everything!

in 2011 i Moved to Indiana from Upstate NY, i left all my family and friends in NY. I found me a few Avon Reps here and there but customer service was very lax. I wouldn’t get new books, when i’d call them and ask for new brochures i was told they had quit! I went through 3 representatives this way Enough was enough! I knew from my mothers experience that people can make decent income with Avon.

In Late February of 2014 I went online and signed up to be an Avon representative, I figured i’d just sell Avon to my co workers and a few friends to get my eyeliners on a great discount. Turns out i really enjoy being an Avon Representative, I will never tell a customer i quit because i couldn’t make money, I will work hard to make sure my team never has to tell anyone that as well
