i havent been on here much or trapped much this year. short line for a few weeks. just didnt feel like doing much.... got diagnosed with lyme a few days ago. Ticks suck. use that permethrim. Cheap compared to the alternative.

Ticks haven't been too bad here. But the fleas and lice have been on the Reds. Buddy told me to bag em and spray and I did. Helped on the one I did it on.
As for the ticks, every time I get done skinnin or what not I get the wife to look me over. One of the best ways to get her to handle my nether regions lol

Hope you do well with the Lyme. Make sure your doc is Lyme aware and treats it well.

Reds are absolutely covered with them up here this year. Greys are hit and miss. I have been carrying raid with me and coating them with it as I get them.

Seems like they keep getting worse every year. Lost a hound to Lyme and have at least three friends that came down with it. No good.

Never even seen lice before until this year on a fox, I had a thread on trapperman about what the heck was swarming my fox lol, some said lice or mites. I hope you take care of your Lyme disease and get well

reds and coons are all covered in ticks this year. prior years it's mainly been coon that were affected for whatever reason. this year the reds seem to have them really bad.

Bummer. What were your symptoms ?
tired all the time, lack of interest, brain fog, aches and pains that came and went, anxiety, numbness.....
i had some trouble a few years back that i never really knew what the cause was. Doc said test showed a recent exposure as well as one in the past. the cheap test is junk. i spent the 300 buck for the good one.
when you spray your clothes dont forget to get the inside of leg cuffs, sleeves, waist , and around inside of neck.

Strange year for ticks here. Spring gobbler season in the woods most days and no ticks. All summer cutting trees and a tick or 2. Archery season still cutting trees and no ticks. Rifle season they were everywhere.

Hope you do have a Doc in the know. A good bud had a bad case of Lyme and has recovered fully now. Bad bad stuff.

I'm retired and I'm in the woods almost every day. Hunting and trapping. It wasn't unusual to find a couple of ticks on me after most outings.Since I started using permethrin in mid October, I've not had a single tick on me. Bought the concentrate at Rural King, one quart of concentrate makes 5 gallon. I've only used a quart of the diluted product. To me, it's been a game changer.
