Ticks and tick-borne diseases are on the rise in the Midwest. A recently published news article stated that Minnesota is the seventh most affected state in terms of reported Lyme disease. The tick population seems to increase over time, which makes Minnesota a high-risk state. Prevention and education is the key to protect both loved ones and yourself.
A good resource for Minnesotans is the Minnesota Lyme Association, where you will find information about prevention and contacts if you are affected by Lyme disease.
