For my friends and family, camping is a favorite pastime during the summermonths. Every weekend brings a new adventure for them at a different campground. While camping is relaxing and enjoyable, one must take precautions against tick bites.Tick-borne disease, such as Lyme disease, has become very common in the United States. While reported cases of Lyme disease date back to 1978, it stumped the medical community until 1981. A vaccine was developed, but was then discontinued due to lack of use.
