Quote:
In addition to the southeast corner of Manitoba, the area around the Stanley Trail in south-central Manitoba is now confirmed to have an established blacklegged tick population, the province said today.


Quote:
Ticks have been identified along the Pembina River Valley at the Pembina Valley Provincial Park near the U.S. border and at Road 22N (north of La Rivière). As well, blacklegged ticks may have become established in Beaudry Provincial Park just west of Headingley. More surveillance in these areas is planned for this summer and fall.

Again to repost one of my favourite OHMIC quotes.
