TICKS - Beware...,

As I was posting another rant, I just pulled a tick out of my hair!

DAM, beware off these insects cause they cause lime disease - something you don't want to contract - since there is no cure...

I was up in the woods of BC, Canada yesterday - and they are everywhere.

Take care and inspect yourself often! DAM bugs...

Yep, if you are unlucky, the ticks can cause viruses. My mom got Borrelia when she was young but fortunately in a very light form.
A good precaution is to have someone have a good look at you just like a good antivirus program.

...and never try to pull them out with force! You can kill the process of being harassed by removing them using butter in combination with a Tick Twister like this one:

It is my understanding that Lime disease CAN be cured if caught early...

Often, the cure is worse than the disease.
That's the problem with lime, you don't know you have it until it is too late...

We hope... But don't count on it... Nasty stuff..
Best defense... Cover up and avoid them in the first place...
