Just Saw My First Tick Today
April 15, 2017 4:51pm CST
I think that I have gotten over my fear of bears. Everyone has been telling me that Manitoba Brown Bears are probably going to be more scared of me, than I will be of them... so I replaced it with fear of ticks. I have gotten into the habit of never go outside without wearing rubber boots and I check my pant legs just in case, but this afternoon... it was hubby that came in with a tick crawling up his arm. He managed to dislodge it pretty quickly, but it still was kind of frightening to see on up close and personal. From what I have been reading, you should watch for a round rash to form... so hopefully, that won't show up... but at least he knows. And if that isn't enough to scare you... he has seen a co-worker consumed by Lyme Disease... Maybe it was the wakeup call that we needed... I don't think that anyone is going to go out without being prepared. Do you know anything about these frightening bugs??

Mike got his first tick off on Ms.Ruby. Cannot do too much .Just spray.When you come in from outdoor. Brush off your clothes .Most of us know about this.Those whose have animals.We always prepared Ms.Ruby. She get the front line and this work pretty good. We are used to this.Know the history and the preparation on this. It is not all that is seems to be.Be caution.shake off the clothing.These things help

I know they can be repelled by wearing certain scents, natural of course and having a better immune system to keep them away . . . Fear should not keep you indoors though, preventative maintenance of your body should be the priority

I read more about them on a post by @Raelove last night. People here are saying they have Lyme disease but the medical profession is denying it at the moment. We have kangaroo ticks here but they don't seem to have such a terrible effect.
