Update: Deer Ticks In Vermont
Lyme disease was first diagnosed in 1975 in Connecticut. Over the last 40 years, the disease and the insect that carries it, blacklegged tick, have become part of the popular nomenclature.
One person in Vermont who has studied the blacklegged tick, more commonly known as the deer tick, is Lyndon State Biology Professor Alan Giese. Giese spoke with Vermont Edition about his research.
