  1. Thank you for your information. However I am an advocate for those suffering from Lyme disease and have a problem with some of your statements. I want to let you know that the time frame for the tick to start transmitting the bacteria is questionable. A study done by Joseph Piesman states that a infected tick can transmit disease in as little as 6 hours after bitten. Also, most people do not see the classic bullseye circle when bitten and are still at risk for infection. I know of people who are extremely sick from a tick that was never even imbedded in their skin. It can take years to start to feel the results after a tick bite if you have a strong immune system. Some people take up to 20 years before they start to get sick. By then they are misdiagnosed with other auto immune diseases such as MS or Lupus or CFS, Fibromyalgia etc.

  2. I would like to hear more info regarding the other ticks that are known to transmit diseases and other areas in the U.S. that are affected.
