  1. I actually know a few who have Lyme disease from ticks. I need to get bug spray to keep on hand to make sure A doesn’t get any. It’s terrible what it can do! I had a tick on my leg last year that I still don’t know how long it was on there. I happened to be sitting and rubbing my leg and felt something weird. Sure enough! I freaked out haha

      Ahh that creepy crawly feeling afterwards too! We don’t have much outdoor area for L to play right now so I hadn’t really been worried about it until recently but it seems like they come from absolutely anywhere!

  2. Thanks for the tips! Seriously never thought to look in some of the places you mentioned. I will be more diligent now! Thank you!

  3. We have a big tick population around here where I live and know several people who have lyme disease. Thanks for the tips.

    Checking every night is huge! My kids haven’t had any yet, but I’ve checked myself and our pup every time we’ve come home and sometimes would find more than one!

    Ticks freak me out! I found the first one on our dog last year, and I have been paranoid ever since! Thank you for these tips!

  6. I have family who’s experienced just how bad it can get! It’s not something to just brush off! Great tips! I use natural repellants too and didn’t know they wouldn’t deter ticks! So, thanks!

    My husband has suffered from Lyme disease for over 25 years. It is scary and can be debilitating. Thank you for shedding more light on the subject!

      Oh that’s horrible Lori, I’m so sorry to hear. It certainly is a subject that people aren’t overly aware about so I’m hopeful my post helps others!

  8. Thank you fro these tips. We just moved down south and the kids spend more time outside and in the yard and I have been thinking about this. This was timely and I sure need to take note of all of these things.
