With increase in rain, the number of rabbits is probably on the rise. THis could cause some of the increase in Texas and other states.

Yeah, it is good to be wary, but even at 235 cases of tularemia, the most individual cases being from Colorado with 43, none reported from Texas (that I can find), this is pretty much a non-event here.

If we do get a case or two, it will be a significant increase over the 0 cases in 2014. Heck, we have only had 4 cases between 2005 and 2014.

Given that tick and mosquito activity is now in significant decline (cooler weather) here, the chances are even less of contacting tularemia from them is practically non-existent. Most cases occur between April and September.
