Risk associated with ticks : Effects of climate and other environmental changes
Global warming and other environmental changes are currently contributing to the expansion of tick numbers. This is because the increase in temperature creates a more favorable environment for ticks.
Climate change and other environmental changes are expected to increase the risk associated with ticks and tick-borne diseases. In addition to Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, babesiosis, Powassan encephalitis virus, and relapsing fever caused by Borrelia miyamotoi, have begun to spread.
People most at risk are those who engage in outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, gardening, mushroom or berry picking, forestry, and farming; in or near-endemic areas
