Lyme disease is transmitted by the bite of a tick carrying the Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria, and unfortunately, these ticks responsible for transmitting this disease are found everywhere in Canada, including in the province of Quebec. The diagnosis of Lyme disease is sometimes very difficult to make, in addition to a sharp increase in the number of cases declared in Quebec, which means that you must be extra diligent when doing outdoor activities in the summer. Fortunately, the exterminators at Extermination EJ can help you eliminate ticks on your property.
