Nasty thing that Lyme disease. I recall working down in the Carolina's doing subdivision surveys and at the end of the day picking of 20-30 of those Black Legged Ticks from my bare skin before jumping into the shower. Never thought much about it back then. Then I got back to Nova Scotia in 2008 and word on the street was that we are now in a controversial global warming deal.
Then our Youth Pastor in our local Nova Scotia church was stripping off to jump in the shower and his Mrs. spotted the telltale "bulls eye rash" on his shoulder. They went immediately to the doctor and got a bunch of antibiotics to knock it out. They were successful. That got me to doing more research and found a bird hunter who used dogs and they always came home full of ticks in their fur anyway his research led him to "Rose Geranium Oil" (Pelargonium capitation x radens) after putting on a few drops on his dogs collar he never seen another tick. So I thought I'll wear a bandana around my neck under my shirt 24/7 and put an eye-dropper full of Rose Geranium Oil every Sunday 9 months of the year. I put a couple of drops inside each boot insole also. I have not seen a tick since. Please do not forget your pet collars also. Just Sayin, you do not need the hassle of lyme disease friend. Bigger companies may want to consider giving this memo to their safety department.
