‘Souvenirs’ after picking up chanterelles

Well, it was wonderful to walk in a forest. The chanterelles were delicious – the day after I have found 3 ticks on my legs. The day after 2 more and my niece had 2 as well.
The ticks season is in place.
I removed all ticks and after a week I have to check the bite places again.

    Oh, nasty little things. Do the ticks where you are carry any disease? Ours carry Lyme disease.

  2. Oh yuk! We don’t have ticks like this in NZ but I was paranoid about picking some up when we were visiting my sister in The States years ago. Ugh.

    • Well… I know there are ticks in a forest and we could get onces but somehow I did not realize it. I removed them but I am still checking my legs. Strange feeling …

    Eewww! I remember getting one of these, as a teenager, on a trip to Richmond Park. When I got in the shower that evening I saw it moving under my skin and truly believed a spider had laid eggs under my skin. I watched a lot of horror movies in those days! Got it out with tweezers but was obsessively checking they’d all gone for days! Bloomin Reindeers!

    • 🙂 well… as I was moving from my sister to my mother place I put all clothes to my suitcase. I think the ticks moved to other garments so I had to shake and air all clothes… I still check my legs and look first for a black/dark brown point with waving legs in the air – before I scratch… 🙂

    Sorry you got ticks but it sounds like it was fun otherwise. 🙂

    • It was just unexpected. The most funny part was at a hospital. I have noticed the tickes while visiting my mother. I was thinking – I am at the hospital they should be able to have something to remove them… no way… pity I did not take picktures of 2 nurces trying to remove the tick with a huge syringe by vacum… it was hilarious:-D
