Risk Of Tick-Borne Disease Remains High

May 20, 2014, 12:46 PM

Risk Of Tick-Borne Disease Remains High
ST. PAUL, MN -

Minnesota health officials say the risk of contracting a tick-borne disease remains high, despite the harsh winter.

The heavy snowfall across Minnesota actually helped disease-carrying ticks survive because they were insulated from frigid temperatures.

Minnesota Department of Health tick specialist David Neitzel says field study locations in central and southeastern Minnesota show a healthy population of deer ticks. The highest risk for exposure to ticks is typically from mid-May through mid-July.

A record 1,431 Lyme disease cases were reported in Minnesota last year. Neitzel says health officials expect that tick-transmitted disease risk will be high again this year. Higher risk areas include wooded or brush habitats in southeastern, central and north central Minnesota.
