In recent years there has been an increase in the rate of bug bite related infections. Ticks tend to show up earlier each year and stay later. As a result, the number of cases of Lyme disease has doubled in recent years. In each of the past two years, Illinois saw record-setting spikes in the number of reported Lyme disease cases, topping 200 new diagnoses last year alone.
Over the past 20 years or so, studies show ticks that carry the disease have become increasingly common in Illinois. In Lake County, the first black-legged tick that carried the bacteria was found in 2006. Now, according to the County Health Department, 40 percent of ticks tested there carry the pathogen.
