There have been several articles this week on different sites about the spread of Powassan virus into the Northeast, which sounds quite scary based on the articles. The major vector appears to be the white-footed mouse, the same mouse that is the major vector of Lyme, and the disease is carried by the black-legged tick. Please be prudent with these little buggers.
