Spring time is still my favorite time - even with the bugs of the midwest!!! We use granules (by Bayer, I think - it's in a red bag anyway!!) and that seems to be pretty effective, even on the chiggers!!!!
I just can't seem to cut back on my spring time activities, as they are what keep me going from year to year! I am careful about doing my tick-checks now, even asking hubby to check the back of my neck/head.
This insidious disease has taken so much from me over the years, I won't let it scare me out of doing the few things that I can still do!!
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.
