    My wife picked a dead one off one of the dogs a week or two ago. We are in southern Ohio.
    More walking, less talking.

    Lone star tick doesnt transmit lyme.

    It could transmit the alpha-gal meat allergy, but theres no prophylaxis for that

    Correct but that would suck to be allergic to red meat, I'm cooking hamburgers right now for breakfast. 👍

    Apparently, people can recover from the alpha gal allergy, so doesnt have to be permanent.

    Wow, nice break out the vacuum sealer, unless you're really hungry! I'm totally out of pork and down to 1 chuck roast and 5lbs. Burger presently going to the butcher probably next week and put my order in 1/2 beef and 1/2 hog.

    When I lived in Texas back in the 1960s I developed a noticeable facial Tic---a twitching of the face muscles. Me and Skater know what we're talking about.

    But if you're talking about TICKS, well, that's a different subject.

    I've been bitten by one and developed the Alpha G.A.L. allergy to meat and pork. It sent me to the ER with a severe allergy reaction before it was diagnosed. In the years since, I have been able to tolerate small amounts of meat/pork so it does improve with time, for me at least.

    Good lord. I'm getting ready to spray the permitherin and was debating doing sports bras & undies or if just pants shirts and socks were good enough. I'm doing everything. I hate all ticks with a passion.

    Yep, I’ve had the Alpha-Gal allergy for over 3 years now. I’m on a strict mammal free diet and mostly able to control/avoid the reaction. In rare cases people have outgrown the allergy. That being said, it is relatively rare.

    I have heard it recommended to not treat underwear. Only use on outerwear.

    I noticed within two weeks after getting bit. I ate a burger and started itching about 4-5 hour after. I had been doing some yard work earlier in the day and thought I might have rubbed up against an oleander I had in the yard. A week later I grilled up an awesome organic burger for dinner and woke up very early the next morning with my face/neck swelled up and covered in hives. I knew what was happening and drove to the ER. My family doc ordered a allergy panel and meat/pork were at the top of the bad list.

    I was wearing shorts when I was bitten. My shoes, socks, shirt, and shorts were treated. My legs were not. I do not wear shorts when hiking in the summer anymore. I tuck my pant legs into my socks when hiking in tick season. Yes, it's a little warmer but I haven't been bitten by another tick.
