Bitten by a tick? Inform yourself and your community by submitting your tick for testing. Your tick may hold valuable information regarding the spread of tick-borne disease.
Southern Tier and Hudson River: Lyme & co-infected deer ticks were found south of Albany and in the Poughkeepsie areas. Lyme-infected deer ticks were also found south in at least two areas in Orange county and west in Newfield, NY.
WNY- In western NY, Lyme was detected in deer ticks from residents residing in East Aurora, Caledonia and Java Center.

What you need to know about Lyme & these co-infections
Lyme disease is a tickborne disease caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. Lyme is transmitted to humans by tick bites primarily from deer ticks and the western black-legged ticks.
Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans. If left untreated, infection can spread to joints, heart, and nervous system and can become chronic. Lyme disease can be difficult to diagnose due to poor diagnostic tests and the lack of rash presented from a significant proportion of people. Tick testing can support proper diagnosis by validating your exposure to an infected tick.
Babesiosis is a tick-borne disease caused by microscopic protozoan parasites that infect red blood cells and are transmitted to humans by deer tick bites. Babesia can also be transmitted through blood transfusions.
Some people who are infected with Babesia microti feel fine and do not have any symptoms. Others develop nonspecific flu-like symptoms, such as fever, chills, sweats, headache, body aches, loss of appetite, nausea, or fatigue. The incubation period is typically between 1-9+weeks.
Borrelia miyamotoi is a bacterium associated with tick-borne relapsing fever (TBRF) and more distantly related to Lyme disease. This bacterium can be transmitted to humans bitten by deer ticks and western black-legged ticks.
Symptoms of infection may include fever, chills, headache, body and joint pain and fatigue. Rash is uncommon, presenting in less than 10% of patients. In laboratory studies, B. miyamotoi has been shown to be transmitted within 24 hours or less after attachment.
