Pike County Tick Borne Diseases Task Force and PEEC have joined forces to help prevent the spread of Lyme and other tick borne diseases. Together, we will work to educate the public about the prevalence and dangers of tick borne diseases, how to protect yourself from becoming infected, and how to enjoy your time outside.

Tick-ID: Know Them. Prevent Them.

Ticks: What You Need to Know

It’s time to enjoy the great outdoors; just remember to Identify, Prevent, and Remove. Lyme disease is a bacterial infection caused by the bite of an infected deer tick. Untreated Lyme can cause a number of health problems. It is our mission to help you stay safe and be informed by raising awareness of tick-borne diseases and encouraging local advocacy and precautions.

The Pike County Tick Borne Disease Task Force is focused on decreasing the number of tick borne accounts by building community awareness through education, support, and advocacy.
