It is still unclear if the facility still partakes in the biological weapons research but there have been speculations since the Animal Disease Facility continues its’ research in secrecy. The (island) facility on Plum Island was given a bio level 5-facility status since it was located off of the continental United States even though they generally only implement bio level 3 safety procedures for containment of biohazards. It is completely possible that pathogens or infectious diseases could escape from the island & infect animals, or even people, on the interior of the United States. Samples of polio & other diseases that affect humans are stored on the facility so an outbreak would be detrimental."

Lyme Disease -
"Some herbs that may help for Lyme disease & the symptoms that arise from it have various properties.
Several herbs that have shown antibacterial qualities in research are yerba santa, goldenrod, garlic, echinacea, astragalus, black walnut, burdock, schizandra & gentian. Horseradish contains hydrogen peroxidase which has demonstrated antibacterial & antioxidant properties & has shown effectiveness against tick-born encephalitis virus.
Garlic, gentian & black walnut are also traditionally known as parasiticides. An herbalist reported benefits for her Lyme disease from tobacco leaf which has shown larvicidal & pesticidal activity in scientific studies.
Traditional herbalists draw on "blood cleansing" or detoxifying herbs in parasitic infections, including such favorites as nettles, goldenrod, burdock, yellow dock, red clover, milk thistle, sarsaparilla, dandelion, kelp & alfalfa. These are used in folk herbalism in resolving rashes, arthritic complaints & lymph congestion. Yerba santa is known to folk herbalists as an excellent herb for coughs, sore throats, fevers, chills & colds that may accompany the onset of Lyme disease. Ginger has been well studied as an anti-inflammatory for arthritis & migraines & as a remedy for nausea. It has been shown to have antibacterial effects & pro-biotic properties in supporting healthy intestinal bacterial population, a + in countering the side effects of antibiotics."
For Pets -
Homemade remedy uses 4 ingredients that are recognized as insect repellents - brief description of each:
EUCALYPTUS OIL - Eucalyptus (eucalyptus globulus, eucalyptus citriodoro) is a known natural bug and insect repellent. Eucalytpus oil is an effective way to get rid of fleas in your home.
It comes from the eucalyptus tree seeds & produces a strong scent that fleas & other insects find unbearable. Studies have shown that it can be more effective than DEET. An additional benefit of this essential oil is that it is an antiseptic so can sooth the skin following insect bites. (Please note this ingredient should be omitted if applying to cats as they are sensitive to many essential oils. Eucalyptus oil should not be ingested by pets.
Do not allow your pet to chew on toys, collars or bedding that is treated directly with the oil).
YARROW POWDER - Yarrow is a healing herb which can be used to treat wounds due to it’s anti-inflammatory properties and used to be a vital herb used in wartime. It has also been shown to have pain relieving properties and is anti-microbial. Pets that suffer from a flea infestation will often go on to get infected bites.
Powdered yarrow can help heal & sooth the irritated skin helping to stop the itching/scratching vicious circle.
NEEM POWDER - Neem is another herb which has been used for centuries due to it’s antiseptic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, & blood-purifying properties. It can be used on pets in oil or powder form as a herbal insect repellent, repelling fleas, ticks, lice, mites, ants & mosquitoes (i) .
It actually inhibits the metamorphosis of the larvae thus preventing the rapid breeding of these bugs.
It is also moisturizing so it helps heal any dry skin or scaling which would otherwise occur from the skin irritation.
FOOD GRADE DIATOM FLOUR - This is also known as Diatomaceous Earth (DE) & is a naturally occurring, soft, siliceous sedimentary rock consisting of fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae, that is easily crumbled into a fine white to off-white powder. DE particles are so small so it just feels like a fine baby powder to humans and pets. It is a simply a mineral silica. Food grade fresh water DE is harmless to humans and pets because it is not a poison – the bugs do not ingest it. DE is chrystaline in structure. It works by scratching the bodies of the insects and causing them to dehydrate. Because Diatomaceous Earth can by very drying, Neem counteracts the dryness & helps protect your pet from excess dry skin.
This food grade DE can be purchased at some plant nurseries BUT be sure & specify that you want food grade (not crystallized or filter grade). DE products are registered for use against bed bugs, cockroaches, crickets, fleas, ticks, spiders, & many other pests.
20 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil (remember to omit this for cats)
Half a cup of Yarrow Powder
Half a cup of Neem Powder
1 cup of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth
INSTRUCTIONS - Simply mix all of the above together in a jar with a shaker lid. Sprinkle on to your pet along the spine whilst brushing the fur in the opposite direction to ensure the powder makes contact with the skin.
Also rub it onto their belly, legs and tail always ensuring that it gets to the skin.
It can help to rub in with a powder puff or cotton wool pad.
Take care to avoid any contact with their eyes & nose.
When this is being applied as a preventative measure once a month
Tick Repellants - Soybean
oil may work as (equally) well as a low
concentration of DEET.
Oil of lemon eucalyptus may be an effective alternative.
Products containing 40% lemon eucalyptus seem to work about as well as products containing 20%-40% DEET.
Be cautious regarding products containing citronella oil, as they only work for about 20 minutes.
Maybe pets would appreciate your testing these oils on them.

Use caution on areas “constructed on a swamp”…[Consider planting
wild yarrow in your
In colder climates, consider planting as a summer annual, as that is when an insect deterrent is needed.]
"Herbalist extraordinaire Susun Weed of the Wise Woman Herbal series of books says that the United States Army studied yarrow & found a tincture of this herb outperforms DEET in repelling ticks & mosquitoes. 1 drawback is that it did not remain effective as long, so it needs to be reapplied often.
1 thing is for sure: avoiding the use of DEET containing insect repellents on yourself & your children no matter what is a wise parenting decision. This stuff is so highly toxic that it isn’t worth it to ever use it in my opinion.
It has been known to cause seizures in young children even at low potency.
Also, a review of the scientific literature turns up 17 cases of DEET-induced toxic encephalopathy in children (1).
Ms. Weed suggests spraying yourself with yarrow tincture every 20-30 minutes if the insects are heavy.
If not, every couple of hours should be sufficient…
Fresh yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is not that hard as it is a common plant that grows wild all around the world in temperate regions. It has lovely, long lasting flowers that may be white, yellow, red, or pink.
Susun Weed suggests the white or pink yarrow varieties as the best ones to tincture.
She recommends picking the flowers, flower buds, seeds, stalk, & leaves from the top 3rd of the plant."
The DIY method for bed bug removal should ideally involve multiple approaches used at the same time as bed bugs are notoriously difficult to eradicate.
1st, try BontaiGard, a product that contains a special type of fungus (Beauvaria bassiana) which kills bed bugs (1).
This fungus grows naturally in soils throughout the world & acts as a parasite to bed bugs eventually killing them.
This is NOT an overnight solution but effectively works over time. Note that this fungus is safe for people
although those with mold allergies should consult with their practitioner before using.
(Perhaps best for damp basements or garages.)
Next, try CimeXa, a nontoxic insecticide dust made of engineered silica powder which is more effective than diatomaceous earth. The exoskeleton of the bed buds is scratched by the dust when they crawl over it, which causes them to quickly dehydrate and die. CimeXa will remain viable for up to 10 years as long as the conditions are not damp & it is left undisturbed (perhaps under beds).
How to Trap Bed Bugs - Finally, you can use the trapping method.
Bed bugs locate their human hosts via attraction to carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted during exhalation.
This can be used to trap them for easy elimination. There are two ways to accomplish this.
1st, you can make homemade CO2 traps for less than $20 (see video or written instructions for how to make using a yeast ferment).
2nd method is perhaps a little easier. Just buy a small hunk of dry ice, which is frozen carbon dioxide that emits the gaseous form as it melts.
Find companies that make dry ice in your area & most will be happy to sell you a chunk for a reasonable price.
By the way, using dry ice to get rid of ticks in your home works too as ticks are also attracted to CO2.
Place the dry ice in a glass bowl that has a paper towel or cloth wrapped around it for the bed bugs to easily climb up on. Slide the bowl under the bed or whereever you suspect the bed bugs are hiding.
The bed bugs will climb up the side of the bowl on the fabric, fall into the bowl & be unable to escape.
Repeat process as necessary until all bed bugs have been removed.
Note that one pound of dry ice will last for about 5-8 hours at room temperature.
If you absolutely cannot find any company in your area that makes dry ice, you can buy a machine to make it (this is one of the cheapest).
While a bit pricey, it’s certainly less expensive than calling in the professionals for 2-3 treatments.
(This might be a good machine & annual routine for cleaning company or for hotel staff.
2nd when using dry ice one needs to honor all precautions, so as NOT to freeze fingers, etc.)

"Tick borne pathogens live in 2 different, yet overlapping worlds. The borellia species, Borrelia burgdorferi, causes Lyme disease & the rickettsial Ehrlichia & Anapksma species cause ehrlichiosis & anaplasmosis respectively. These pathogens of humans & domestic animals possess physiological & pathogenic mechanisms that enable them to infect & replicate in 2 quite divergent hosts, the mammal & the vector tick. Vertebrate & invertebrate in vitro systems have been developed to study replication & pathogenic mechanisms of these pathogens...Changes...are germane to the success of the pathogen & to our development of diagnostic protocols & vaccines for the prevention of tick borne diseases."

10/13/2014 - "Tick-borne diseases continue to climb in Maine, particularly anaplasmosis; the state has seen 39 more cases [of anaplasmosis] this year as of [30 Sep 2014] than in all of 2013, according to the Maine CDC. Health officials say there have been 133 cases of [this] bacterial disease in the 1st 9 months of 2014, while 94 cases were reported in all of 2013. Other tick-borne diseases are also on the rise in Maine. The number of cases of the parasitic disease, babesiosis (malaria-like Nantucket fever), is now at 33 cases & number of Lyme disease infections is near 1000 & is expected to rise further as Lyme reporting is passive & may require a couple of months to get all cases counted."
