May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month and Designer Genevieve Gorder is Helping Make an Impact During Lyme Disease Awareness Month and hopefully for the rest of the year.

Many people think you can only be impacted by ticks by being out in the woods, but backyards can also be havens for these tiny pests. That’s why this spring, Genevieve Gorder is teaming up with Terminix to encourage consumers to take preventative steps to keep themselves and their families safe from ticks and the diseases they can carry. In recognition of Lyme Disease Awareness Month, Terminix will donate 10% of May, June and July sales of its new Tick Defend™ System to the Global Lyme Alliance, in order to raise awareness of the tick-borne illness and how to guard against it.
