By: Rosalie Laune.

Last summer a fellow Master Gardener and friend became seriously ill.  After unsuccessful attempts to treat her condition locally, her daughter, a physician, had her admitted to BJC.   There she was diagnosed with Ehrlichiosis, a serious bacterial illness caused by the Lone Star Tick, a tick originally found in the Southeastern states but which has now migrated to our area. 

Symptoms appear in one to two weeks after one is bitten and may vary. Individuals do not experience all symptoms and some may not even realize they have been bitten.
