Mike,
Being that you used to live in Virginia, How do you compare the spider situation in CO Springs area. Mainly North or East. What's the overall comparison in relations to Virginia bugs, critters and weather? Were you in NOVA? The humidity is killing me. Do you love it out there? Any regrets? Thanks for your time Mike. BTW-What are skeeters? Don't post any pictures though.

Skeeters are mosquito's, which I have a hard time spelling.

Not that many spiders here, fewer than in VA.

Lots less humidity here, no dog days like the DC / east.

Yes, you should check for ticks especially if you hike where there is a lot of brush. Tick season in Colorado starts in March and usually peaks sometime in May. I've walked through tall grassy areas in April and May up here and had many clinging to my jeans.

Lyme disease is not a problem here. This article states that ticks known to transmit it are not known to occur in Colorado, and no confirmed cases have originated in the state: Colorado Ticks and Tick-Borne Diseases

Ticks can transmit diseases such as Colorado tick fever, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tularemia and relapsing fever. Colorado tick fever is the most common tick transmitted disease of the region, Rocky Mountain spotted fever is rare.
