@enlightenedpsych2 People are told not to walk in the woods with bare heads and not to sit in the grass of meadows. Ticks as such are a nuisance but not really dangerous. Yet, the kind of ticks which we have in our region (and, strangely, also in Japan) can be sick. Not all are. One never knows. If one catches one of them, they can cause meningitis or inflammation of the joints. So, it's advisable to go to the hospital and have it pulled out and the spot treated.

I have Lyme disease. Had it a couple of times. The ticks are terrible here. All I remember doing was going out in my yard and walking across the lawn before my husband mowed the grass. I forgot to put on bug spray. Now I try to make sure that I spray before I go outside. I'll have to get a supply of bug spray soon. Have to start getting the garden bed ready for next month.
