Number of infected ticks in CT rapidly rising (via FOX 61)

NEW HAVEN– Scientists believe this could be the worst summer ever, in terms of the number of infected ticks, in Connecticut.

But, tight state and federal budgets may hamper efforts to put the brakes on this uptick.

Over the last several years, 27 percent of the ticks tested, at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station in New Haven, were infected with Lyme Disease. This year, it’s close to 40 percent.
