  • Be ready for ticks

    The lone star tick and the American dog tick (Figure 1) are common problem species found in Kentucky and much of the eastern U.S. They are a significant threat to everyone who works, plays, hunts, hikes, or camps in or around overgrown or undisturbed areas. Reactions to bites vary from person to person based on the body’s response to the salivary mix injected by ticks as they feed.

For some reason the phrase “this is your life” came back to me recently as I was sitting in the lobby of a hotel in Atlanta waiting for the final session of the conference I was attending.
