ALBANY, GA (WALB) – They're tiny pests that can be found all over southwest Georgia. And you don't know you've been bitten by the blood sucking parasites until it's too late.
Ticks have been known to carry Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, but now allergists are looking to see if they're causing another nasty and potentially deadly reaction.
They're being studied to see if a simple tick bite can produce an antibody that causes an allergic reaction to veal, pork, and red meat.
