This is most likely to happen from ticks in the nymph and adult stages. Instead, they use a method called “questing“, which is when a tick waits on low vegetation (tall grass) and attaches itself to a host as he or she passes.
Ticks identify hosts through cues such as carbon dioxide as well as heat and movement.
People who live, work, or play in places near woods or overgrown brush are at risk of tick-borne diseases. When possible, avoid infested areas, especially in the spring.
Ticks thrive in moist, shaded environments where deer and rodent hosts are abundant.
Permethrin products should be used on clothes (not skin).
Treat clothing and gear, such as boots, pants, socks and tents. Pre-treated clothing is available and remains protective for up to 70 washings. Find other repellents registered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) at
Nobody will judge you, as nobody can find out your real name. How is it that the only conversation I had was with a person on private chat that was sitting right in front of me. Why is it that neither of us "reported" each other and sent everything from vulgar images to name calling to saying some of the nicest things to each other. If these "mods" see something they don't like they throw you into a "prison" chat room for an undetermined amount of time to "rehab".
It is important to remove ticks as soon as they are found.
It can take several hours or even days for an attached tick to spread a disease.
Vaccines for pets are not available for all tick-borne diseases, and they don’t keep pets from bringing ticks into your home.
For these reasons, it’s important to use a tick preventive product on your pet. Signs of tick-borne disease may not appear for seven to 21 days or longer after a tick bite, so watch your pet closely for changes in behavior or appetite if you suspect it’s been bitten by a tick.
