EHD Round-up for Sept. 3

It’s busy season for epizootic hemorrhagic disease (EHD), a disease of deer that is spread by midges (a type of small, biting insect). The most recent report is from West Virginia, where wildlife biologist Jeff McCrady of the Division of Natural Resources told the Parkersburg News and Sentinel that recent deer deaths there appear to be due to an outbreak.

Other states reporting EHD since our last report, about two weeks ago:
Delaware
Ohio
Illinois
Pennsylvania
North Carolina

Happy Labor Day.
