The Ohio Department of Health is warning hunters and outdoor enthusiasts about a growing numbers of ticks.
The Blacklegged Deer Tick was once considered rare in Ohio, but is now popping up across the state more and more.
The colonies are mostly found east of I-71, where the woods are denser.
The Blacklegged Deer Tick is a transmitter of Lyme disease.
Officials said if you or your pet get a tick, make sure you remove it immediately.
