  • The Lone Star Tick is very widespread throughout the U.S.
  • You’ll find this tick mainly populates forests.
  • The Lone Star Ticks, like all ticks, can be a vector for disease.
  • It’s important to note, however, that this particular species of tick is very unlikely to transmit Lyme disease which is commonly associated with ticks.
  • This bite can create an allergy to meat products.
