Province and Ottawa to Study Ticks in NB

The provincial and federal governments are partnering to enhance field surveillance and tick collection over two years.  The geographic range of blacklegged ticks, which can transmit Lyme disease, has been expanding, so they’ll look at where.  Grand Manan, Grand Bay-Westfield, Saint John, Rothesay, Quispamsis, St. Stephen, Saint Andrews and St. George are among targeted areas.
