North Shore Health Department:
News from the Health Department:

The North Shore Health Department investigates several tickborne infections including Lyme disease, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis, and rocky mountain spotted fever. Lyme disease is the most frequently reported tickborne illness in Wisconsin (3105 cases in 2018), but numbers for the other conditions are increasing. Common symptoms of tickborne diseases may include fever, chills, muscle aches, headaches and a circular rash. Preventing tick bites is the key to reducing your risk of tickborne diseases. 
During high tick season, April through September:  
  • Avoid areas with tall grass and brush where ticks are common.  
  • Apply repellents that contain at least 20%–30% DEET. 
  • Wear long pants, tall socks, and a long sleeve shirt to minimize exposed skin. Light colored clothing makes ticks easier to spot. 
  • Wear clothing treated with 0.5% permethrin. 
  • Shower soon after coming indoors. 
  • Perform daily checks. Check your entire body after being outside even if you were only in your yard. Concentrate on the hairline, abdomen, groin, armpits, and behind the knees. 
It is important to remember that ticks are present in all counties in Wisconsin. People living in any county in Wisconsin can contract Lyme disease or other tickborne diseases. Ticks must be attached for at least 24 hours to spread Lyme Disease, so remove ticks as soon as they are found.
