  1. Check your County government offices. We have a Vector Control Officer who will inspect your tick to determine its age and whether or not it is a female. By the sex, age and length of time it was attached, they can determine whether or not you should be tested for Lyme disease. If it was on you less than 24 hours, you should be safe, at least from the Lyme disease. I don’t know anything about the Rocky Mtn. Spotted fever. Good luck and be careful. We live in the woods and I have to check my kids for ticks every night before bed. And the deer ticks that carry Lyme disease are so small, like the size of a very small pin head. They’re disgusting!

    • Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a helpful suggestion and useful information, Frenchtwistedwoman. I will check with them this week. I will update this post when I know more.
      Many blessings to you and your precious ones.

  2. Thanks for reminding us to take the time to check for ticks. For some reason I thought they only came out in the hot summer but I see it is spring as well. I pray that you stay well and disease free! :)

    • You’re welcome, NeeNee. Please be careful and safe when going out. The nymph is most active in early spring and the one to carry diseases. Thank you so much for your prayers and well wishes. I will keep the comments updated. Be blessed. :-)
