Deer tick population peaks in October

ORONO - Maybe you thought when the weather got colder the danger of deer ticks might go the way of warm weather. Well, the experts tells us that it's really just not cold enough to say good-bye to the ticks.

Maine is home to 14 varieties of ticks. All year long, people send ticks to the labs people send ticks to the lab at the University of Maine Cooperative Extension Service in Orono.

"This actually is the biggest time of the year for deer ticks. And the deer tick is the most common tick right now," according to Jim Dill, a pest specialist at the Cooperative Extension Service.

The deer tick also carries lyme disease and anaplasmosis, both of which can mimic flu-like symptoms.

"The deer tick is out and active as long as it's 40 degrees," Dill said during an interview Monday afternoon.

What precautions should the active outdoors person take?

Dill said, "Maybe, except for this time of the year, wear light colored clothing. That's so you can see the ticks better."

The number of lyme disease cases in the state of Maine may have peaked at about 1,200 per year. Experts, however, said when you come in from outdoors, be vigilant.

And check yourself for ticks.
