Connecticut will have a new way to keep an eye on ticks this season.
The state is starting a tick surveillance program.
Researchers will be collecting the bugs at 40 sites across the state from April to October.
It will go hand in hand with the state-supported tick testing program, which has been identifying ticks with lyme since 1990.
The new program will be funded through a grant from Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Public Health.
