I just pulled the 5th tick of the year off my leg last night! It hadn’t embedded yet; rather it was racing up my leg to hide, tripping over my hairs and so alerting me. It reminded me that I haven’t written about ticks and the diseases they transmit in these columns since 2013! Time to review again, given that circumstances have worsened since then (Fig. 1).
