Topic - Ticks - Be aware

JohnnyW - on 07 May 2014
I am surprised how many of my hill friends say they have never had any. I ask myself if they just never noticed, the wee beasties fed and then buggered off unmolested?

I have just returned from 3 days camping in Fisherfield, took all the normal precautions re: no shorts, no wandering through the bracken, was wearing bloody proofs most of the time anyway.... and yet my wife (aka the Tickfinder General) has taken 5 off me since Monday.

Given how small they are before they really get cracking, they're easy to miss - She uses a headtorch and gives me a VERY thorough going over after a wildcamp.

Check yourself folks, or get checked. Lyme Disease is serious.

Happy camping.........
