Scary little critters.
I shot three pigs a few weeks back. They were loaded with ticks.
I found two on me the next day, Menard County

I was driving home a few weeks ago after turkey hunting and felt something under my arm. I stopped at the next gas station and pulled it off.

Back when Uncle Sam directed my camping locations we would use flea collars on the out side of boots and sulfa dust on the pants legs. It worked pretty good most of the time. If your itching you better be looking or have a good hunting buddy who will. flag

Oh yea those cheap auto inspection mirrors can help you look if your flying solo. Not every thing under the shed belongs there.

They have been bad at our place in south texas for 2 years now.

I don't know what all I'm going to do to keep them away, but off was not enough to do it last year! Trouble was most of the ticks I found were tiny, the size of a pin head, you just don't know they are there.

If your turkey hunting or anything where you know you'll get them hang your clothes up and spray them with permanone and let them dry. This stuff is the best tick repellent I have ever used. Used it up in Missouri I was the only one that did not get ticks while everyone else was covered in them.

Powassan Virus kills about 10% of people infected for now mostly in the northern USA

in Texas we have to worry about:

Tick Texas: Tick-borne Diseases. Each year Texans contract Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Ehrlichiosis and Relapsing Fever. All of these diseases are transmitted by the bite of an infected tick.

we use Permethrin on boots & pants & DEET on skin

The second most abundant tick in Alabama is the Lone Star tick. A single bite and you could develop an allergy to red meat and dairy products.

we had them bad in our yard last year, only two so far this year. They would jump off the dog and creep on you from the carpet at night. The wife was not happy until she was sure they were all gone. They can live for up to a year without feeding.. mad

I just talked with a gal yesterday I've worked with for many years, we hadn't talked in a while. She's battling Lyme disease right now. Mis-diagnosed for many months, she's got quite the rehab ahead of her.
