Hello all, One of the less obvious risks of antenna and tower work is that of acquiring infectious disease from ticks and other pests that we encounter in the field. I've attached below an excellent

Lyme disease is endemic and epidemic in this part of Massachusetts, mostly because we let Bambi and his ilk run free to be a pest to you and me.Deer are the common vector. Some doctors are paranoid a

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 w

DEET won't protect you against ticks! Don't rely on it. And deer are not the largest carrier of ticks, mice are. Any time you are walking in grass no higher than your ankles you are susceptible to pi

We have mostly changed over from products with DEET, to Picardin. It is supposed to be much less harmful to humans than DEET is, and it doesn't destroy plastics, clothing, etc. like DEET does. But as

We're wandering a bit, but you don't pull or dig out ticks except as a last resort. Pulling them usually removes the tail end only leaving the head to cause problems. Light a match, let it go out, th

We just had a safety briefing on this very topic. The recommendation, actually, is to never use vaseline, nail polish, or a hot match to make a tick come out. You SHOULD use tweezers, grab as close

It does not matter where you find them and what the size is. Lyme disease might be carried by any. Dogs might become infected by ticks as well. And yes, pull them out with tweezers as soon as possibl

How things change with time. It was a safety briefing as well as published in the local news paper about 5 or 6 years ago (+/-) to use the match. Oops...It was before I retired so that would make it

Yes, while the match, jelly, contact cement, etc. may work, they have an awful side effect. The tick will regurgitate toxins back into you when it is unable to breath or under stress. So, with these

Seems to me that the tweezers would be far more likely to squish stuff back out of the tick. The official line is: http://www.cdc.gov/ticks/removing_a_tick.html Quite a bit more info here: http://fir

I had thought that also. But if you grab it with the tweezers at the very surface of the skin, you actually prevent stuff from coming back out (see the CDC diagram). I was just outside looking at th
