RINPR: "This is the season for adult deer ticks" By BRADLEY CAMPBELL
Rhode Island Public Radio's Bradley Campbell interviews Dr. Thomas Mather about the Fall tick season as he collects them by the hundreds.
"Adult-sized deer ticks have emerged throughout much of the northeast and parts of the mid-west. These are the teeny-tiny bugs that give people Lyme disease and Babesiosis, sicknesses that can lead to everything from swollen joints to memory loss. Rhode Island Public Radio's Bradley Campbell introduces us to a man who collects them by the thousands."
