SOUTH MILWAUKEE — The South Milwaukee Health Department is warning the public after very small ticks were found on children playing in South Milwaukee.

The health department says the ticks on the children were from simply playing in the backyard. A total of 11 ticks were removed from the kids.

A photo shows the size of the ticks, in comparison to a dime — they are hardly visible.

Check your children, and yourself!
