Watch out for Black-legged Deer Ticks

According to the Ohio Department of Health, the blacklegged deer tick is on the rise in Ohio with established populations in 26 counties, the Health and Natural Resources departments announced Friday. State officials are warning hunters and outdoor enthusiasts to be wary of the ticks, which are known to transmit Lyme disease. They say the blacklegged deer tick is primarily found east of Interstate 71 and is active throughout the fall and winter.
