Mosquitoes & Ticks
Zoonotic diseases are transmitted to humans from animals, mosquitoes, ticks, and other vectors. Ohio Department of Health’s Zoonotic Disease Program is designed to educate, prevent, & control those diseases.
Ohio Tick Surveillance 2020
According to the Ohio Department of Health, the number of tick-borne diseases have increased. The ODH Zoonotic Disease Program will be monitoring and testing tick submissions that are sent to the ODH Lab.
If you find a tick on a family member, yourself, or a pet, you can bring the tick to the Environmental Health Division at Seneca County General Health District and we will submit the tick to the ODH Lab for species identification.
