    If you did a full body search for ticks after each hike, your odds would be very favorable to never get Lyme. Take precautions but have fun!

      Full body search is too late if your bitten by a Lyme infected bug the you get lyme's Disease.

      Wear clothing that is thick enough to prevent your body getting bitten and long boots then may be you will be safe!

    I'm in Colorado, just found my first tick on me. It didn't latch on. Put ties on your pant legs, tuck in your shirt and use and insect repellent. That should stop them.
