Where is Bartonella?
While I appreciate this app and will recommend it, I do not like the links to the CDC's info on Lyme testing and treatment. 3-4 weeks of antibiotics is not enough to eradicate the bacteria or co-infections, especially if not diagnosed promptly, and thecCDC admits their ELISA test is highly inaccurate. The Western Blot is more sensitive. Also, you did not include Bartonella as a co-infection. NC State is the top University in the US studying that right now, and have one of the best labs, Galaxy, testing for it in Durham.
I love having this app handy on hiking/fishing trips. I find ticks crawling on me and my dog occasionally and using this app as a reference always puts my mind at ease. The guys at NC State Entomology have delivered once again!
It's simple, straight forward and provides quality information about a potentially life threatening pest. Great job guys!
