As insects expand, new areas may become prone to Lyme disease - insciences
excerpts from above:
Quote:
Last summer, after returning home from a walk in Madison's Dudgeon-Monroe neighborhood, Susan Paskewitz was astonished to find a deer tick crawling up her dog's hind leg. It was the first time Paskewitz, a University of Wisconsin-Madison entomologist, had collected a tick in the city. Within the month, she learned of two other such cases.
Quote:
"In Wisconsin, people sort of feel like they already know this story. They know there's Lyme disease here, but one thing this (survey) points out is that it's not a static situation," says Paskewitz. "What your risk was 20 years ago may not be what your risk is today. It may have significantly increased, so you should not be blasť if you get a tick on you."
