2017 could be a record year for ticks and tick-borne illnesses according experts across the country.  The warm, wet winter and spring have created conditions for dense undergrowth in forests, which allows ticks to thrive.

According to Don Hartley, Doctors are urging Alabamians to take precautions to reduce the chance of getting Lime Disease this summer.  The Deer Tick disease is on the rise this year across the South, and the state of Alabama.

In addition, a warming climate has let certain species of ticks expand their range and those changes are reflected in tick surveys in Alabama and other parts of the United States.
