Lone Star teak known to cause red meat allergy found in northern Wisconsin: report
The lick of a lone star, a type of tick known to cause a bite to some people to develop an allergy to red meat, was found in northern Wisconsin, a rare occurrence, since these small arachnids usually do not meet in a state.

Lone star ticks that are not native to the state and baptized as a white spot on the back of older women are sometimes reported in the southern part of the country. Half of Wisconsin, if at all, according to the Department of Entomology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said that Susan Paskevitz, the chair of the Department of Entomology at the University, told Channel 3000 that the lonely star was most likely north , joining a bird or other animal that later reached the area.
Last summer Scott Commins, an allergist and associate professor of medicine at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and one of the first doctors to discover the link between Bone Lone Bites and Alpha-Gal Allergies, said Fox News that Allergy Caused from a bite from Lone Star, is relatively rare.

This movement leads to closer contact with the deer with ticks, which subsequently increases the chances of tick bites.
Commins also said that increased awareness of allergy has led people with symptoms to talk to their doctor and investigate whether a single star tick. Biting can be the cause.
Although it's not quite clear how bites of lonely stars sometimes lead to allergy, Commins said that saliva of ticks can be a factor. he said then. "It may be a protein or an enzyme in spitting ticks. We are currently working on this issue in the lab. "
