There are numerous tick borne diseases other than the commonly heard Lyme Disease. This one may be the worst. Unlike the antidote for Lyme disease, there is presently none for this one. Prevention is the best means to avoid ticks. Deet is not a deterrent since ticks avoid the fumes which keep insects away. It is recommended to spray the clothes (not your skin), you may wear in the garden or woods, with Permethrin. It kills insects on contact and stays on your clothes for 5 to 6 washings. It's available at Walmart, EMS and multiple other stores.
