Lyme Disease is a vector disease that is carried by tick species in the United States and Canada. While not all ticks carry Lyme Disease, they may carry other harmful tick-borne illnesses such as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and even red meat allergies. The top U.S. states with confirmed Lyme Disease cases are heavily wooded areas with large white-tailed deer populations (the number one carriers of ticks in the United States). 

Here is the list of the top states with confirmed Lyme Disease cases: 

  • Connecticut (where "Lyme" began)
  • Delaware
  • District of Columbia (New to the list)
  • Maine
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • Minnesota
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • Pennsylvania
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont
  • Virginia
  • West Virginia
  • Wisconsin

As you can see, the New England Area is on high alert for tick diseases and should use caution when outdoors on hiking trails, gardens and dog parks.
