From the Wall Street Journal:
If Lyme disease isn't reason enough to avoid ticks, here's another: the inability to enjoy a burger.  Odd as it seems, researchers say that bites from the voracious lone star tick are making some people allergic to red meat—even if they've never had a problem eating it before. View Video

What is Rabies? What animals are most likely to carry the virus? What animals are least likely to carry Rabies?Rabies is a fatal neurologic illness transmitted to people by direct contact with the saliva of a rabid animal, normally through a bite; however, transmission through saliva contact with mucous membranes or a fresh wound is possible. The virus cannot penetrate intact skin. Rabies virus is inactivated rapidly by ultraviolet light and desiccation and does not persist in the environment; therefore, contact with the environment around a rabid animal such as with bedding or water bowls does not present a risk. In Minnesota, rabies is found mainly in skunks and bats. Livestock and pets generally develop the disease following a bite from a rabid skunk. People in turn, are generally exposed to rabies by bats, livestock and unvaccinated pets. Bites from wild carnivores and large rodents such as muskrats, groundhogs, and beaver are also of concern. Species that are not a rabies risk in Minnesota include mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, squirrels, chipmunks, rats, voles, and rabbits.If there is ANY possibility that the virus could have been transmitted or that the area of skin exposed to the saliva of the potential carrier may have a miniscule break or crack in it, you should immediately seek medical attention, and ideally, have the animal captured for testing. There is no cure and going through the inoculations is nothing compared to succumbing to the disease!!Please have your pets vaccinated against Rabies, even if they are not outdoor pets. Bats can find a way through extremely small cracks and crevices in homes to live in attic spaces/rafters or dark corners and ceilings.View current MN incidence map
