Ticks were likely shielded from the cold temperatures by the deep snow in wooded and brushy areas where ticks are found, according to David Neitzel, a tick specialist with MDH.
Neitzel said the MDH is finding a large number of adult blacklegged ticks in central and southeastern Minnesota field study locations and they expect immature nymph stage ticks to become active soon.

"We think about climate change all the time," said David Neitzel, a Minnesota department expert in insect-borne diseases. With climate change, he said, "there is going to be a change in all the diseases we work on."
Neitzel said he's seen it personally on his property in Becker County.
"I've been stomping around up there since the early 1970s, but in just the last few years we're seeing black-legged ticks up there," he said. Deer ticks are also known as black-legged ticks.
To cite an example, Neitzel said, when timber companies cut down an older section of a forest the new growth is better for ticks.
