Agency spreads message about Lyme disease
"Ticks, which can't fly or jump, hold in a fixed position known as questing. They wait at the end of a branch, blade of grass or pile of wet leaves. Sensing vibrations, carbon dioxide and heat of animals, they attach themselves to animals as they walk by."
Columbus Public Health has launched a comprehensive public-awareness campaign, warning residents about deer ticks and their potential to spread Lyme disease.
