Tick ID Field Guide - This field guide provides more in depth information on ticks and Lyme disease; it reflects actual tick sizes and appearances for male and female Deer, Lone Star and Wood ticks. This resource shows the "Bull's eye rash" and identifies how TIME is critical for preventing this disease. TIME needs to be taken before going outside with proper preparation of clothing and use of repellents. TIME needs to be taken when you come inside to check yourself for ticks--there is a small window of TIME that you have to stop the disease from starting if you notice a bite. You also need TIME to check other loved ones or pets, and finally take the TIME to keep your yard neat and closely trimmed to keep mice and deer away. The guide also provides information for pregnant women, farmers, hunters, fishermen, outdoor workers and parents; it also addresses treatments and frequently asked questions.
