As someone who picks ticks off himself (and the other day one was in MY PRIVATES(!)) and many, many, many more off the ($60 Frontline treated) dogs near daily I find this mind blowing.
WOW. This is beyond the pale.
Lyme disease is NOT funny. I know quite a few that have it.
I live in dread every day. This is prime Tick & Lyme country and as you must know I go walking/running/hiking around here every day. I don’t think you can build up immunity against Lyme but I keep on hoping that is the case. Though I manage to pick MOST OFF before they really manage to get through my rhinoceros skin, I still end up with 20 to 30 decent tick bites every year.
This is disturbing.
