      According to my vet, two of these diseases were, until now, unheard of.
      One of them leaves the victim with a red meat allergy!
      Neato, huh!

        I'm using Deet whenever in the woods during warmer months. I spay my ankles, socks, lower pants legs, and upper portions of my boots. It seems to help.
        Permethrin works wonders on ticks. Don't even need other insect repellent for them.

          Use Permethrin, spray clothes, socks, boots and let it dry. works even after washing. Do not spray on skin.

            Some rearcherer needs to genetically maniplate the DNA of an insect, bird, snake, frog or something that feeds on ticks.

                Although there are no real "natural enemies" of ticks, they are the favorite food of guinea fowl.

                  Good, lets raise some guinea. Wait, are those the ones that attack ?

                  When I lgot in the car this AM, there it was, a tick right on my drivers side window. A big one so maybe a harmless dog tick.

                    So, does this mean cut-offs are out this summer ?
                    I am going to spend the summer on my boat, no ticks on the water - so far.

                      Where is that ? Is it true not every tick bite causes lyme ?
