We had a house near the ny/ct border in a wooded area in westchester county, NY. The deer were everywhere in the front and back yard and that's when my wife fell ill. So we moved out and into an apartment in the city, where we are safe from ticks.
Although my wife got a tick bite at that house in NY, I think she might have contracted Lyme about
4 years prior when we lived in Chicago. We had gone hiking in Kettle Moraine state park in Wisconsin one summer, and that fall she became deathly ill with panic attacks out of nowhere for several months. It spontaneuosly went away and I think a tick bite in NY reactivated it and then some.
