The next morning, she found out what it was! When she woke up, this is what she found on the bed where I was sleeping! Click on it to 'bigify.'
Over 100+ little tiny ticks, all dead. And I had been crawling with them the night before! OMD! Mum thinks these little things took some of the best prenatal vitamins ever!!!
We found out that they are called 'seed ticks,' little tiny ticks the size of a pinhead. They are the same as Dog Ticks, but are in the nymph stage, the stage just before they become an adult. And you can get into a nest of them where the eggs turned into larvae, then into the 'seed ticks,' and get them all over you! Some folks call it getting 'tick bombed.' Can you believe this?
How creepy! So far I've been lucky, before and since, and haven't run into a nest of them. And Gracie didn't suffer this fate. Good thing I was treated, because they say these ticks can spread dreaded tick disease too! Ewwwww.....
