What about ticks?

From April to July, depending on altitude, ticks become prevalent. About 1/8" in diameter, reddish brown and flat, they may carry the Colorado Tick Fever virus. If you find one embedded in your skin, gently pull it off, and call a physician if you develop symptoms like fever, headache or muscle aches.
