    One Route For Lyme

    I read with interest the armadillo connection to leprosy. I have been curious about eating deer meat that may be infected with Lyme disease. Every deer I've ever seen killed is loaded with ticks. I've never tried to take a specimen to know exactly what kinds of ticks are more prevalent, but as many as they carry I wonder what percent of the population is likely to have the disease.

    Do You Hear A Ticking?

    I am in Arizona and found a few ticks on my two dogs. One was gray and fat and the other three were clustered together and were small with a brown/blackish color. My other dog had a cluster of something (either a scab or maybe eggs) by its ear with red skin irritation. My question is can ticks lay eggs somewhere on the dog's body too? I know they can lay them in the house, but I want to be sure...

    Ticks And Lumps

    I recently went to Arkansas and while there I picked up a c-tick (that's what they call it). I seem to have brought it home and it was embedded in my side. I used tweezers to remove it but now there's a hard lump there. Should I have that looked at? I feel fine, but it does annoy me.

    Bugs That Live Up To Their Name

    I am having a real bad problem with stickbugs. I realize they come in with firewood, so I have brought it in piece by piece to burn. I have a very large home, and know they are over wintering. In the fall, the house was covered. We are ripping out 2 bathrooms to redo and it seems they have worked their way through the whole house, the insulation (you can smell them) etc. The year before it was...

However due to remodeling they seem to have quite a few cracks and crevices around the baseboard areas of the home.

    The Time It Takes For Ticks

    Ticks are very hard to control if the situation gets out of hand, right? Should we tell the customer that we will not accept any control program that isn't at least one year long? Or, do you think there's a way to end the problem in a shorter time?
