Vermont Health Department warns of summer ticks

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- The Vermont Health Department is warning people to watch out for ticks that could carry Lyme disease.

At this time of year, the immature ticks, which are about the size of a poppy seed, are biting and they could spread the bacteria that causes Lyme disease.

Ticks tend to be common in tall grass, areas with a lot of brush and leaf litter, and along forest edges.

People should use insect repellent and do daily tick checks on themselves, children and pets. Immature ticks can be found anywhere on the body.

In 2013, there were more than 600 confirmed cases of Lyme disease. Most cases were from four southern counties, but it has been found throughout the state.
