Lyme Disease, is s serious concern for anybody working walking in a wooded area
or any tower located in a grounf brush area.An ounce of protection is worth a
pound cure. But as warmer weather is apron us, My major concern is from the
Stinging flying critters. not fun as you are climbing over a tic ring or
around a swing gate .MY worse experience was from a sema box used as a
Prop-Pitch Selsyin wire junction tie box. and just above the rung I was stand
on.Well thank GOD it was a Bee nest - as the ones that were up my Jeans could
only Sting me Once as I crushed them between the material and my calf ankle
area.This was on a old Air Motor free standing tower, Lesson learned. always
examine any area for Bee/Wasp nesting area and carry a can of bug kill as you
go aloft. Be Safe. Wayne W3EA > From: firstname.lastname@example.org
