Lyme disease is a bacterial infection spread by the bite of an infected blacklegged tick, also known as the deer tick. Of all illnesses you can get through a bite in the U.S., it is the most common. It is very common in Wisconsin. People living in Dane County who are diagnosed with Lyme disease are reported to Public Health Madison & Dane County so that cases of the illness can be tracked.
