Many Long Riders are oblivious to the fact that ticks are more apt to ruin a journey than dangerous animals. There are, for example, “only” an estimated 70,000 wolves hunting in North America. Contrast the number of wolves against the estimated quintillion insects, 10,000,000,000,000,000,000, residing on the planet today. Don’t overlook the fact that there are 900,000 different types of insects and that 91,000 types reside in the United States alone. Thanks to these numbers, you can quickly realize the likelihood of you suffering from some type of negative insect-related experience while riding through the wilds.
