Okay, I know that there really is not such a thing but I looked at this map and is just astonishing how horribly infected the east coast is.

And these are only the CDC cases reported.

Check out the map. Where would you choose to live?

Yes, I am now obsessed with moving out of NJ.

Colorado?


You can still stay in NJ, just move to a more cemented area.

Texas is not that bad in certain areas... stay away from the forested areas. Austin and the Hill Country would be safer.

Then there's West Texas ... where NOTHING lives... hahahaa.. and far South Texas, where you don't WANT to live. [Wink]

Because the state is so large, the number of cases would need to be divided by at least 5.

However, there is only ONE decent LLMD there.

MY question ,,,if your trying to avoid lyme disease,,,what are you going to do about "STARI" type lyme


Masters disease if you will.

Now I drew a blank of the tick that carries it. The one with the yellow banjo shape on its back.

Remind me please somebody what that ticks name is and how do you guard against that one??

NJ is the most densely populated state in the country (so cramped here - I need breathing room) So, yeah you would have to do some math to figure out the ratio to other states.

But when you put it in context even the light green colored states (TX, CA.) do not seem that bad.

NJ population density per square mile is 1,170. Texas population density per square mile is only 92 people and Texas is how many times larger then NJ? Big difference.
