WI DHS Offering Tips to "Fight the Bite" of Ticks & Mosquitoes


The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has launched a statewide “Fight the Bite” campaign to help people avoid being bitten by ticks and mosquitoes this summer season. The most common diseases spread by these pests include Lyme Disease, spread by ticks, and West Nile Virus, spread by mosquitoes. Over 3,100 cases of Lyme Disease were reported in Wisconsin in 2018, and.33 human cases of West Nile Virus were reported in the state last year, according to DHS. Experts say the steps to protect yourself from mosquito and tick bites are simple, and include using repellent – such as DEET, wearing light colored, long-sleeved shirts and long pants, checking for and safely removing ticks from yourself, your family and your pets and controlling mosquitoes outside your home.
