Ticked off and it's awesome

A few months ago we had a speaker from Yale give a talk on disease vectors such as mosquitoes and ticks. Great talk. After some discussion, we agreed to bring some ticks up to Yale so they can see what diseases they carry. 

Yesterday we had two ticks in a few hours. Today, however, we hit the jackpot at Nescopeck State Park. With 6 people, we collected 13 ticks (2 were dropped and lost and one that was found later went down the toilet). So we have 15 ticks in the -80 and we'll see if they have Lyme, Heartland disease, and BMD
