Fire. Drought. And ticks. "Colorado State University tick researcher Daniel Salkeld has been studying ticks for the better part of 15 years. On a research trip to Northern California in late May, he found numerous western black-legged ticks "” the ones that carry the bacteria that causes Lyme disease "” at collection points in Marin, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, he says, and they were particularly abundant in the Marin Headlands.

In the vegetation near Stinson Beach, he collected ticks in all stages of development "” larvae, nymphs, and adults. "I had never found that before," he says."
