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.
The Tick Talks blog will be posting regular news, information and interviews with tick-borne disease experts, so keep checking back and feel free to reach out to us on Facebook and Twitter.
