Ticks are becoming more of a problem due to increased
risk of infection by Lyme Disease:

So if your mate develops a 'bullseye shaped rash'
don't just catty pellets at it! [:D]

It goes on to say

Sufferers can also experience joint pains, fever and fatigue. Other symptoms can include a stiff neck, facial paralysis or nerve tingling.

I feel like that after sex

I was bitten in South Africa, and I had Malaria - Tick-bite fever is worse than Malaria!
