TICK CONTROL ALERT FOR WEST ATLANTIC CITY, 08232:

When you think of Atlantic City, you probably do not think of ticks or Lyme disease. After all, America’s east-coast playground is better known for neon lights and slot machines than blood-sucking bugs.

But remarkably, West Atlantic City has a reasonable problem with ticks; which is why it’s the subject of an Aspenn Alert.

The issue is West Atlantic City’s location – right on the banks of Lake’s Bay. The reeds, rushes and wetlands are the perfect breeding ground for ticks; and have an abundance of wildlife that unknowingly serve as taxi-service for these Lyme-infected arachnids. With residential properties right on the border of these wetlands, ticks often find themselves carried into people’s yards and gardens.
