Study to track ticks moving north into Adirondacks

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- Springtime swarms of bloodthirsty black flies and mosquitoes are common in the cool, moist woods of the Adirondacks. But the disease-carrying ticks that plague southern New York and New England are rare in the northern mountains.

That's starting to change. Scientific studies have documented that ticks that carry Lyme disease and other maladies have been expanding their range northward, westward and into higher elevations.

A new field study launched this spring will document outbreaks of ticks in the Adirondacks and create a baseline from which to study their spread.

The data will give residents and hikers information about taking precautions in certain areas and will alert health professionals to watch for tick-borne illnesses.
