We had a little department safety mtg this afternoon. It was about ticks and Lyme disease. The session was almost over when I noticed something crawling on my shoulder. Sure enough, it was a tick, but not one of them disease carrying deer ticks. Never seen one of them.

Those are good pictures that Dennis linked to. It's common to come down with the lyme disease here. Heard the disease can take up to a month before it shows up. My son was bitten and it took three days before the half dollar red mark appeared. They give you some pills to take over a 10 day period. The deer tick looks more like a spider walkin on ya, it's smaller and more round than a regular wood tick. I been bitten by em several times without getting the disease. They have sprays to help keep them off you if they bother you. But I'm tough! I don't need that spray stuff. LOL

How do you tell a 'regular tick' from a 'deer tick'? The little dog that got terrorized by the deer went to the vet for a checkup and the blood test said she had lyme disease. She's been taking pills now for a cuppla weeks. I'd like to know what the little suckers look like so I can tell one when I see one.

Biggest clue is that deer ticks are WAY smaller - about like a grain of sand. Try a
Google search. :)

Taking the kids to baby jail this morning. Looked over at the passenger seat and a large deer tick was crawling up.
