@Yoni I'm not sure how the second paragraph follows from the first. If the tick is not biting how is it comparable to the flea which is?

@DoubleAA it just passively remaining on the skin. A tick does not necessarily bite right away. I have found them resting on a person with no indication that they ever bit.

@DoubleAA yes, the common wisdom says ticks which are removed within 24 hours are generally not able to generate lyme disease in the host, though that has been called into question. But all agree the sooner it is removed the better. lymedisease.org/news/hardscienceonlyme/…

@WAF is there any other book in tanach where 91% of the pesukim start with a vav? I can't find any that are even close to that.
