Thank you for this, Ticker! Actually, I think I've neglected to thank you for everything you've contributed here, it is appreciated! Well, everyone else as well, but I'm thinking of Ticker , particularly , in all this right now.

Lyme in NC in 1971? Suspect TBI: Fully engorged tick followed by high fever and tonsillitis. Follwed by , lumps on neck,  chronic tonsillits w/ constant low grade to recurring high (104) fevers, severe unexplained neck stiffness and acute neck pain.   Followed by tonsillectomy, urinary tract infections, miscarriage, appendicitis while pregant, chronic severe back pain. Followed by depression, mild anxiety, mitral valve prolapse, and hypglycemia.  Was this a TBI??
Bit again couple of times, lyme suspect bite Mother's Day 2007. Bite, symptoms, lyme specific antibodies on the most lyme specific band of all = 39 IgG.  Still awaiting appt w/ LLMD.

This is very interesting and puts it all into a bigger perspective.

I had just read about tick tubes yesterday. I need to try to treat the mice out here. I want to find the least harmful approach to keeping the tick population down. I used to raise chickens for the eggs, and I'm seriously thinking of starting over. I think it's Banty's that I keep reading are good for this.

Thanks for sharing this!

Turquoise Sky, are Banty's the same thing as guinea hens?  I have heard that guinea hens eat ticks.

Ticker, thanks for the article!   It brings back memories of when I first met you and asked you about the white footed mouse being the host, do you remember?
