To add to the above.
If you are going to any area of long grass or vegetation, where ticks may be present, it is always good practice to check that you have none on you when you leave, in your own garden as much as anywhere else. It is never pleasant to find a tick on you and as Katzeye suggests an infected tick can give you Lymes disease. That doesn’t mean that if any tick bites you, you will get Lymes disease. It has to be an infected one.
P.S. Katzeye. Don’t like the sound of a plague of bedbugs!
