Deer ticks are very small. From left to right, are a larva, a nymph, an adult male, and an adult female. The nymph (at the end of the arrow) is only size of poppy seed, and it is particularly active from mid-spring through mid-summer. Nymphs may be responsible for most Lyme infections.
In this episode (75), we continue Becca Harber’s class on Lyme disease. This time, she discusses treating tick bites, considerations about pets, tick repellents, and diagnosing Lyme disease. Handouts for the workshop are downloadable from our Part 1 post.
