Here’s something wkyc.com forgot to mention, from ourohio.org: “Last year there were 48 reported Lyme disease cases in Ohio, according to the Ohio Department of Health. The highest number of cases in Ohio is 82 in 2002. In comparison, neighboring Pennsylvania had 4,287 cases in 2005 (the most recent statistic available) and a high of 5,730 in 2003, according to the CDC . . . In the northeastern and north central United States, the deer tick, also called the blacklegged tick, transmits the disease. According to the CDC, only 15 percent to 20 percent of the nymphal stage ticks (those that typically spread the disease) carry the bacteria.” You feeds your deer, you takes your chances. For you and you neighbor’s kids.
