I didn’t survey this morning, but sadly awoke to deer tick bite #3! This one I’m the most worried about: did I track it in? I’m especially paranoid about it because I remember having a scab there; was it a deer tick I overlooked? I have the least certainty about how long this one was attached. I don’t think it was engorged, but I think it was an adult deer tick. I finally treated my field clothes with permethrin this evening, so hopefully it will help.
Also, I took more steps to foot care and bought KT tape. You’re supposed to visit a professional to learn how to apply it, but ain’t nobody got time for that (at least me, right now in a random corner of the state). For now, I’m relying on YouTube videos and various instructional websites.
