We need more detail on where ticks Are
Re: Three in 10 ticks positive for Lyme, u Ottawa research shows, Oct. 5.
I continue to read with interest the various reports about tick infection rates, the sampling method and that sampling is ongoing. We are told numbers are growing and areas are expanding. What we are not told, however, is where the areas are located other than “around Ottawa.”
To be of any use to the public, the specific locations are necessary, along with tick infection rates in each area. Only then can one make an informed decision to avoid those locations because of the heightened risk potential. Eric R. Stephen, M.Sc., Ottawa
