Longhorned Ticks In Missouri

Researchers at the University of Missouri College Veterinary Medicine have discovered invasive longhorned ticks in Missouri.

This tick has caused damage to agriculture worldwide and can transmit disease to humans as well.

M-U is asking Missouri farmers to watch for symptoms of infection in cattle, such as weight loss, weakness, jaundice, and pregnancy loss.

Farmers are asked to contact their local veterinarian immediately.
