CJOB News Team reporting
Manitoba is seeing more wood ticks this spring. At least two entomologists confirm the numbers are up, and they're with us earlier than usual. But don't be alarmed. Manitoba's Medical Officer of Health for Infectious Diseases...Dr. Richard Rusk tells CJOB wood ticks do not pose a health risk:
It's the black-legged deer ticks that are much smaller that can carry lime disease. But Rusk says even then, just because you see one doesn't mean it's carrying lime disease.
