QUESTION: Where and when have you encountered swimmer’s itch?

Three Lake Association recently became aware of some new technology that measures the abundance of swimmer’s itch cercariae in water, which is the life stage of the parasite that actually causes swimmer’s itch. We’re seeking information from people living and/or swimming in Torch, Clam, and Bellaire Lakes.

Please respond to this post with the location where you, friends, or family members suffered from an incidence of swimmer’s itch (an address or the GPS coordinates would be most helpful). Also indicate approximately when the incident of swimmer’s itch occurred (month and year). Other information that would helpful is if you routinely swim at a particular location and have not suffered from swimmer’s itch.

Historically Three Lakes Association has assumed a low incidence of swimmer’s itch in these three lakes. To continue this trend and to minimize swimmer's itch, don’t feed the ducks, vigorous toweling after swimming, applying various oils on skin prior to swimming, and swimming in deeper water rather than near shore.
