Anaplasmosis is an illness spread by ticks. It is the second most common illness spread by ticks in Wisconsin. It usually spreads through the bite of a deer tick infected with the bacteria that causes anaplasmosis. Ticks that spread this bacterium can be found in every county in Wisconsin.
Not all tick bites will make you sick, but it’s important to protect yourself and your family while enjoying time outdoors.
Anaplasmosis is preventable and treatable. Learn more about Tick Bite Prevention.
