Fall tick season is in full swing

The Danbury Department of Health and Human Services notes that fall tick season is in full swing and so are outdoor activities.  Whether hiking in the woods, raking leaves, or taking the dog out for a walk, residents are urged to take precautions against adult black-legged and deer ticks.  Both can transmit Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. Black-legged ticks survive best in areas that provide a moist habitat and are often found in and near wooded or forested areas, shrubs, long grass, leaf litter, urban parks and gardens. Ticks can be submitted for testing to the City health department and residents can also choose to take part in a research study at the WCSU Tick Lab.
