Attention AR friends! All the statements about “there is no Lyme in AR” are totally false. This assessment completed in 1995 by the Dept. of the Army shows, without a doubt, that ticks carrying Lyme are prevalent. So much, in fact, it was considered that persons in the Little Rock Air Force base region were at moderate to high risk of contracting it!
If it was bad in 1995, that would mean that it is much worse now, as the tick population as not decreased, nor have they packed their bags and left the state! Friends, Arkansas State Health dept is claiming there is no Lyme in AR. This is false. You may read the report at this link: http://lymeblog.com/LDRA-USARMY83-96/100.txt
