"We're approaching the peak time of year for Lyme disease, when the risk of being exposed to the illness is greatest," said David Neitzel, an MDH epidemiologist specializing in diseases carried by ticks and mosquitoes.

If you do develop signs or symptoms of a tick-related illness, you should see a physician right away, Neitzel emphasized.

Because mosquitos can't travel far from stagnant water, their control is relatively easy, said Dave Neitzel, supervisor for the vector-borne disease unit at MDH. On average, between one and six cases of La Crosse are reported in the state annually, according to MDH. Since 1991, there have been 16 occasions where a mosquito thought to carry the Zika virus has been located in Minnesota, Neitzel said. On each occasion, the bugs have died out in the winter, but Neitzel said it's important to take steps to prevent them from settling in Minnesota. "Since we don't have those mosquitos established here, the risk of Zika virus transmission locally appears to be pretty small at this point," Neitzel said.
