Interesting read. It is long and although there are some inaccuracies I found it to be rather interesting.

The Rise of the Tick

"With incisor-like claws that can tunnel beneath your skin in seconds, ticks are rapidly becoming the world's scariest purveyors of deadly pathogens. Carl Zimmer walks into the woods to find out why these tiny beasts are skyrocketing in number - and outsmarting scientists with every bite."

Wow good find! I didn't get through the whole thing yet, but it looks like a good read...

The difference between acute and chronic infection in this disease is astonishing...

Interesting article.I wonder why the tick population has exploded across the country.When I was a kid,we played in the woods and rolled around in the grass all the time and rarely got bit.

Now a days I check myself all the time for ticks,they seem to be everywhere.I think we could help the Lyme problem by researching how to reduce the amount of ticks as much as we research how to treat it.
