By Grant Robinson: Research tracking tick increase in Alaska
The researchers says that having baseline information on the ticks in Alaska can help prevent an outbreak of tick-borne disease.

“We have the benefit in Alaska that because we’re so far North we haven’t seen the epidemic of ticks and tick-borne disease that people have seen in other parts of the lower 48,” Hahn said. “If we’re prepared and we’re looking for these ticks we can really be at the forefront of the problem.”

Anyone who finds a tick in Alaska can learn more about submitting it to the research project at the State Veterinarian website.
