Reminders This Spring

As the biggest of the snow piles disappear as if by magic and green overtakes brown here in the Sebago Lakes Region of Maine, there are a few reminders and thoughts we’d like to share with you. The first, is all about those of you who are looking at building lots, and lots of land whether you are thinking of selling, or you are in the market to buy land to build just what you have in mind. To really see what you will see from late November through late Spring, you will need to get out and see those spots, or show off your spots soon, if you want non-foliage views as there are now many buds starting to appear on the trees. For those of us who travel in New England, we can attest that the leaves budding out and turning into foliage that will block lot see through capabilities, are happening just an hour or two south via car, with the weather predicted likely to rapidly increase the greening, and spring foliage, of our great Maine Sebago Lakes Region. Another important reminder worthy of mention is that this season is being reported to be one that is very favorable for the possibility of you – and don’t forget your pets – to pick up deer and wood tics even if you are not spending much time in the woods. This appears to be a year due to conditions where the reminder that “the tics are thick” is a good one, and to always check yourselves and your pets for the pesky little pests.  Especially since our pets can easily bring them back into our homes, where they can jump or fall off ready to attach to any potential host. Now that the snow has finally melted, the adult tics that failed to find a host in the fall, are now out in substantial numbers throughout the spring, dying off in early summer.
The deer tick nymph season starts in early June, peaks in early July, and ends in August. The risk of contracting Lyme and other tick-borne diseases is highest then, because the small nymphs, smaller than a sesame seed, are difficult to see and their bite is painless. So remain diligent, be aware, and make it a great week!
