Unfortunately, ticks also love summer in The Hamptons
As natives of the East End, we have seen an explosion of Lyme Disease, Erlichiosis,and other diseases transmitted by ticks to pets and humans. We have consulted with some of the most dedicated entomologists, scientists and doctors. There is too much misinformation, and we are dedicated to keep you informed of the continuing research and accurate information available. A favorite quote of scientists we have consulted with is “if someone says something long enough, people will actually believe it.”
Life-cycle of Ixodes scapularis (a.k.a. black- legged or deer tick) in the northeast/mid- Atlantic/upper mid-western United States.
Larval deer ticks are active in August and September but these ticks are pathogen-free. Ticks become infected with pathogens when larvae (or nymphs) take a blood meal from infectious animal hosts. Engorged larvae molt over winter and emerge in May as poppy-seed sized nymphal deer ticks. Please note that most cases of Lyme disease are transmitted from May through July, when nymphal-stage ticks are active. Adult-stage deer ticks become active in October and remain active throughout the winter when the ground is not frozen. Blood engorged females survive the winter in the forest leaf litter and begin laying their 1,500 or more eggs around Memorial Day (late May). These eggs hatch in July, and the life-cycle starts again when larvae become active in August.
