The little critters are small but mighty.
And a dedicated team at Virginia's Department of Health is
intent of tracking not only the prevalence of certain types of
ticks - but the diseases that they carry. Dr. David Gaines, a
public health entomologist, and Joshua Bertalik - a vector-borne
disease epidemiologist, joined us for a discussion on all things
tick. Together we help you identify ticks, prevent them and if
you need to - properly remove them.
They say grandpa's way may not be the most effective.
