I live in the area with the highest concentration of Lyme Disease cases in the US. I'm not sure why there are so many here. There are a lot of extremely dense vine areas and tall grassy areas within the woods. That's where I get ticks. So far I have probably pulled off maybe 4-5 deer ticks. They weren't nymphs but they still could have carried Lyme. No rashes, though. I guess I'll have to wait and see. I'm not worried. It's usually just dog ticks for me but it's deer ticks about 20-40% of the time. I think I even got a Lone Star tick once. Anybody else get ticks?
