It does not get, over for the year over here. I picked 75 from one coyote and 50 from one fox, that is the record. Most have em.

Finally got my bigger tractor going and was hogging. I came through a known deer trail. Shortly after I felt the itch, looked down and jumpin crap there were bunches crawling on me.

You guys know how cattle men hang those rope/rags with bug juice on them to control spring fly and other bugs on cattle? I been thinking of hanging those over deer trails. I know deer are not the only carriers but it is getting ridiculous here.

Later I'll read through this whole post and see if I can learn some combative tic tactics.
I've searched the web. They just seem to want to sell you something that does not work.

I had my first encounter with "Turkey Mites", a stage a the tick's life while turkey hunting this spring in Arkansas. I had never heard of them before and originally thought it was just a bad case of chiggers. I had removed about 50 small ticks in one morning. Now, 2 1/2 months later some of the bites are still open and irritating. My bites look as bad or worse than the ones in your photo. Nasty beggars!

I pulled 9 ticks bite on off on the evening of the 12th. 5 on the 13th and 4 the 14th. Only two on the 15th. One had a good grip on the 15th. I am about done with the big numbers of them for the year. I itch, and think I feel them on me full time.

So about 18 years ago one of those buggers hooked into my leg. I discovered it because my leg was itching near the intrusion. Once I pulled the little guy out the itching stopped. So the question is, and I ask this not just for myself but for everybody else who has had tick bites long ago and never had symptoms, is there a chance we could be at risk from a dormant disease that could rear it's ugly head sometime later?

Yes and trust me I have dug them out of it. I don't own much, I have not pulled at least one off of. Some are in worse locations then others. I am still itching, but it seems to slowing slowing some.

I dug one out of my navel about a week and a half ago. I still itch all over. I had one bit on between my fingers under my glove. That was an itching mess. Can't forget the one on the left nipple.

Read a report in the news paper that confirmed a " conspiracy" theory that I had brought up a few years ago. Yep biological warfare testing off the coast of New York A tracking of the spread of Lyme pin points the spread from this lab via deer that swam from island to mainland.

Wish I had a electronic version to copy and paste but it was cut out if a newspaper and sent to me



Also many of you may not search the " trapping only" forum on here but I had a artical I wrote published in the August issue of Fur Fish Game magazine and it tells the only good thing to have come about in my life from this illness.

I contracted lyme about 15 years ago and was lucky enough to be treated right away with antibiotics, so everything is fine. I then got the lyme vaccination which at the time was 2 shots followed by a booster 1 year later. Now the vaccine is no longer available for people, but still is for dogs. Strange world we live in. Too many anti-vaccine fanatics and law suits by people claiming to get arthritis from the vaccine have stopped its production. Really too bad for those of us who spend time in the woods. I can't get another booster which was recommended after 10 years because NOBODY makes the vaccine anymore!! Check the following link for the facts on this sad situation.

Any of you guys know what percentage of accuracy the blood test for lymes is?

Last year after spring turkey hunting, I had to dig one out, that was embedded in my scrotum! I was REAL careful not to slip and cut something important. It itched like crazy!

(NO, it wasn't a crab)

Don't know percentage but the WESTERN BLOT TEST which is the normal test is not accurate

I had to have the one by GENX, or whoever, I can't remember the name, done. Bad bad herxy effect when I had it done

I am under going the exact same regimen right now. I sure hope it takes care of it.

Please jot this down. https://ag.umass.edu/tick-borne-disease-diagnostics/submit-tick. This is is a college that will DNA test a tic for you that you just pulled off of yourself. This is much more accurate than getting yourself tested (and cheaper) at just 50 bucks.
When you pull the tic off of yourself (wire method is best), Put the tick dead or alive inside a plastic tube (NO ALCOHOL OR ANY SOLVENTS). You can use a baggie but tape it completely closed so it cant get out. Take note of the date bitten and, where on the body the tic was removed. Follow the above website directions, within 2 weeks you will have the DNA results. They do test for more than lymes.
Even if your tic is infected, This is not a diagnosis that you will have got lymes from your tic. Lots of variables there. But your dr should be shown any positive results and if he is lyme literate he will put you on 6 weeks Doxy as a precaution. This is the fastest way to prevent a lifetime of horror of dealing with Lymes.
The problem is... say you had a tic, it was infected, you got infected, didn't know it, a month later you come down with what you think is the flu. dr gives you 10 days of antibiotics. you feel better after taking the antibiotics, then a month later you are sick again and it is worse. You would seriously have been better off not taking the 10 day antibiotic. Now You may end up taking bank busting antibiotics for 6 months to a year. Please spend 50 bucks to see it what you pulled from your body is infected or not.
Research now indicates a mother can pass lymes to her baby, a lot of couples have Lymes, there is current research to discover if Lymes can be passed thru sex. Most famous couple I know of who has lymes is Chuck Norris and his wife. I do know a lot about lymes as I researched it 5 years ago because a friend has it. God Bless
