If you are going out and about in the great outdoors this summer, you may want to be extra cautious about ticks.

A concerning report from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire indicates that there is likely a larger population of deer ticks this season, which means there are more tiny carriers of Lyme disease to be on the lookout for.

It’s possible this isn’t just the case for the upper Midwest, but for any area where deer ticks are prevalent. Even though most of the country experienced a winter with more extended cold periods than normal, experts say this cold was not enough to kill off a large population of ticks. So Colorado, that’s us!

Experts are saying that they may be adapting to the cold. Great… just what we need. Ticks that are learning. Make sure you you go hiking or camping or whatever, to wear bug spray and try to avoid overgrown areas and check for bites.
