Summer is here and that means tick season, as people are spending more time outside where they live. Locally, experts say they have found some ticks carrying a deadly virus.

“We’re testing for powassan virus in Pennsylvania, we’re finding that 4 percent of ticks are carrying this virus, it’s difficult to diagnose and treat just because there are really no test out there you have to go through the CDC to get it,” said Nicole Chinnici, Northeast Wildlife DNA Lab Director.
