With Temps Heating Up, Time To Check For Ticks

Summer means it's time to start getting serious about ticks, which can carry Lyme Disease. Dr. Andreas Kogelnik is Director of the Tick-Borne Illness Center of Excellence at Howard Young Medical Center in Woodruff. Kogelnik says Wisconsin is a Lyme hot spot. "My guess is that we're still grossly underestimating it, and part of that problem is testing. Testing is way behind where we need to be . ..and we need the testing to really understand  and identify and address the problem." The Center of Excellence was established to treat tick-borne illnesses, as well as research them.

Only ticks or parasites I worry about are those who want more money from the taxpayers
