It might seem like ticks are a spring and summer problem, but it’s also important to take steps to prevent tick bites when you are outside on mild fall and winter days, especially if you live in the Midwest or Northeast. Just 13 states in those regions accounted for 96 percent of the nation’s reported Lyme disease cases last year, updated Centers for Disease Control statistics show. Those states are Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia and Wisconsin.
