Well, I agree that tower and antenna work most certainly takes you into
territory that these ticks inhabit--if you live in a Lyme disease area. In
part, this because deer hang out on the paths that we make; sleep there; hide
there. So if you live in a Lyme disease area, you may be more likely to be
infected doing antenna/tower work than, say, barbequeing dinner.
Perhaps the best advice is don't do any tower or antenna work without
wearing DEET; wear long pants taped at the boot; wear long sleeved shirts;
for brown dots on your body after the antenna/tower work.
How's that OM:-)?
