Hi, my name is Lilly and I like spending time in nature to practice my survival and bushcraft skills. This is a holistic survival channel which means that besides wilderness survival I also do modern survival videos. Sometimes I use modern tools which people might have at hand in a real survival situation. Also all of my videos are pre-recorded, which mean that they do not get released immediately after I film then. That is why seasons in the video can differ from actual seasons. Thanks for watching ~ Survival Lilly

  1. Ddt was banned with a whole bunch of other chemicals thus animal population explosion and also fewer hunters created a tick explosion.

  2. Thanks for the research, pls keep us posted on results. In the North East of America, the “black Legged Tick” also carries a disease called “Human Granulocytic Anaplasmosis”. symptoms are flue liked, If not treated, worsening, into eventual death. If you know you have been bitten, whether it is a reaction on the skin or in any way, you do not feel normal, one should go for blood work.

  3. I live in Connecticut(CT), only 30 miles from Lyme, CT where Lyme’s Disease was first identified. Lyme, CT is on the coast of Long Island Sound. Plum Island is a few miles off of the coast of Lyme. Until the 1990s, Plum Island was a biological research laboratory. Newsweek Magazine reported that Lyme’s disease is a germ warfare weapon that escaped from Plum Island in the 1950s. The person in charge decided that the bacterium could not survive in nature so, they did nothing about it. Twenty five years later it had spread all along the CT coast and the US government was resisting the identification of the disease. It turns out that Lyme’s is a mutation of the syphilis bacterium and even has the spirochete shape so that it can screw itself into the brain. The University of Connecticut Medical Center did a lot of research into Lyme’s. They found that a 6 week course of Tetracycline gave a 90% or better cure rate. The medical insurance companies wanted treatments cut to 3 weeks which only gives a 50% cure rate(but saves the insurer money). The bacterium can hide itself in the body and go dormant for awhile. While dormant, it is pretty much immune to the antibiotics.
    There are now 7 diseases spread by ticks in CT. Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, and Lyme’s are bacteriological. There are 4 viral that I don’t know much about except that one kind is transmitted by the lone star tick. It can infect you in 15 minutes and one of the effects is to make you allergic to mammal meat.
    My wife and I each had Lyme’s 5 times between 1986 and 2010. Last year she got sick and was in the VA hospital. After two weeks they finally identified Anaplasmosis by accident. Unfortunately, it was too late and my wife of 39 years died. We had both told the admitting MD that we had lots of ticks and tick diseases in our neighborhood but he trusted a test that was only 20% accurate. My son and I were feeling lousy so we were treated for anaplasmosis too. We both got worse for a few days but then got better. A couple months later I had to be treated again. Been okay for 9 months now. After Martha died, I met a firemen who had Babesiosis. He had a tube in his arm and was being treated with IV antibiotics. This had been going on for 8 months. I met several other people last summer that had to be hospitalized for Babesiosis. A local EMT told me that another woman in our town had died from a tick borne disease. An employee at the local hospital said that they had 7 deaths from tick bites.
    The test for Lyme’s is only 60% accurate. The test for Anaplasmosis is only 20% accurate. The Center for Disease Control now advises that when a tick disease is suspected, start 3 weeks of Doxycycline immediately.
    One problem is that Doxycycline is easily damaged by vitamin D. If you eat dairy with in 2 hours(before or after) of taking the Doxy, you will decrease its strength. Sunlight on your skin creates Vitamin D which will also damage the Doxy. You will also get a severe sunburn.
    The best treatment is prevention. I bought 6 spray bottles(they screw onto the garden hose) of Cutter and sprayed my yard in April. I treated my clothes with Sawyer permethrin. Still haven’t seen a tick but am just starting to see mosquitoes Please be carefull. I saw on our local TV that the diseases can now be spread by mosquitoes and dear flies under some circumstances.
