INDIANAPOLIS - Hoosiers are urged to protect themselves from tick bites while outdoors as warmer weather increases tick activity.
The Indiana Department of Health has found the black-legged tick, which can carry pathogens that cause Lyme disease and other diseases, in all but three Indiana counties.
While Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne disease in Indiana, Hoosiers are also at risk for other tick-borne diseases, such as ehrlichiosis, tularemia, Heartland virus, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and related diseases. Residents of southern Indiana are at greater risk for ehrlichiosis, which is associated with the bite of the lone star tick.
