      A few years ago, my cousin from Florida, on a visit to the upper midwest, came down siluatanously with Lyme disease and another tick borne disease (the name escapes me at the moment).  No fun but he did recover.

    I contracted Lyme up in Northern Maine. If you live in any prone area make sure you are aware of the  symptoms and go to your MD if you even think you have it. That rash isn’t always in a bullseye, mine was just bright red. I had the rash 4 weeks before any symptoms,had I know what the rash was I would have been treated sooner. I’m really anal about spraying my shoes and pant legs now!

      I assume you did some research on what kind of spray was most effective , what product do you use ?

        DEET is still the best although no panacea.  Avoid tick hangouts, spray ankles ahead of time, confine your outdoor clohtes to a mud room and wash them frequently, and shower right after with a full body examination.

    This is no joke! I lost my pooch of 3 years to Lyme disease. I was working in Biddeford at the time. I had no idea that the dog was ill until it was too late-and I have been around Goldens all my life and keep my animals as happy as I possibly can. They are treated better than most children, so it can and Does happen without our knowing. Be alert-this is serious!!
