Comment: My county

(See in situ)

My county

has the highest incidence of Lyme disease in the nation.

We have a lot of trees, but we are not in a forest. We have our property sprayed for ticks every year; still, in the spring, ticks are everywhere until that takes effect.

So when our children go beyond our property, they always have to be wearing tick repellent...sometimes they forget. They come home from the playground or friends' houses with ticks.
