"Try to avoid areas where mosquitos or ticks are prevalent", said environmental health director Dan Thorell "Ticks that carry Lyme disease are prevalent in our area even more so along, say for instance, the national lake shores, Sleeping Bear Dunes area".

The CDC says they've seen six hundred 40 thousand cases of illnesses from mosquitoes, ticks or fleas across the country from 2004-2016. The CDC says diseases like Lyme, Zika and West Nile are on the rise because of warmer weather in spring and fall, which extends the life of bug populations.

►Make it easy to keep up-to-date with more stories like this. Just as worrying, most local authorities tasked with controlling mosquitoes and ticks aren't fully prepared to do so, the CDC indicated. "The mechanisms that allow their survival are varied and complicated". Ticks should be flushed down a toilet or wrapped tightly in a tissue before being disposed of in a closed receptacle.
