COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A Lyme-disease-carrying species of tick rarely encountered in Ohio before 2010 is increasingly making itself at home here.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that populations of the black-legged tick are thought to be migrating from the east. So far, they've shown up in at least 26 Ohio counties.
Ohio has recorded 36 cases of Lyme disease so far this year, and more might crop up this fall as hunters stomp through the woods in search of turkey and deer.
There were 53 Lyme disease cases in the state last year. But experts say the invasion of black-legged ticks -- also known as the deer tick -- could produce higher numbers of cases in coming years.
