I recently came across an older "Yankee" magazine article I think from the 70's. Mabne 90's.
On Mogehen Island in Maine they had to eradicate all the deer to get the tick population down.
I just wonder how that is sustainable , since migrating birds can and do fly and nest on islands. They carry ticks to new places also.
Just reading the same about
the monhegan island deer eradication and also flipped thru Of Ticks and Islands about
testing ticks on the three islands in that area - seems like one that was more fun to write than great to read
BUT I'm still curious what strains of bb are most abundant on these tiny islands. I know, I know there's many visitors who could bung different strains but I can't help but wonder what is the MOST commonly found strain. Anywho, know a family friend who was most likely bitten there and her neurolyme got really out of control, so I'm glad I'm treating now, even after 17 years!
