Ticks are small eight legged arachnoids in the Sub Order Ixodidae and are plentiful in woods and gardens. They are ectoparasites living off the blood of mammals and birds. They are disease vectors for Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and more. I am not at liberty to tell you where this one and its four brothers were found. My wife is my permanent hero. My doctor who is an infectious disease expert has put me on a
week of dicloxacillin.
