HOLLAND (WKZO) -- Ticks are a greater concern this year in west Michigan.

Michigan State University entomologist Ned Walker says the wet spring's helped tick populations explode.  He says ticks that carry Lyme Disease are heading into new areas.

Experts say if anyone does find a tick on themselves or a pet to use fine-point tweezers to remove it.
