We have been bit a lot and find one or two crawling on us daily starting now into October and I suppose I have had some mild form of Lymes...I know folks have had that from ticks here. That is one up side to the summer droughts we are having...no ticks...until the next rain.

My husband has just had Lyme but I think we have fought it off with high doses of vitamin C. I have also had success in the past with colloidal silver. I agree that a healthy lifestyle is key
That poor snake.
