Garrapatas/Tick season.

 

Lots of ticks out there. Watch your animals, and yourself.  The garrapatas are about the size of a pin head. You know when one burrow into your skin by the intense itching.

 

We were discussing this morning yard treatment, and one person is using Asuntol power on her yard.  Available at the pet store on Juarez.

I did a search on this site for Lyme disease and came up w/a post from 2010 saying the ticks in Cozumel don't carry it.  I'm pretty sure lion fish weren't a problem then either, but things have changed.  Is it still the case that there aren't reported Lyme disease infections on the island?  That would be a great thing if that's the case.  It's a terrible disease!

No Lyme disease, but there is Erlichia.  Erilichia Canis (infects dogs only) is widespread. Sypmtoms can include, fever, petechiae, bleeding disorders, vasculitis, lymphadenopathy, discharge from the eyes and nose and edema of the legs and scrotum. Severe cases can result in the dogs death. It can be difficult to treat and even the test for it is rather expensive. $650mx.
