Many bugs come out in the fall and their ideal hideout is in the leaves that you jump in. Jumping in leaves is a very fun experience for little kids, I remember doing it as a small child, but have you thought of how many bugs could potentially bite and make your sibling or child have an infection. Many ticks come out in the fall and they are so small that a bunch of leaves is a perfect place for them to hide. Ticks can carry many diseases and they are so small that they have many places to hide on your body. After you go outside and play, go inside and check for ticks. They can carry many diseases such as spotted fever rickettsiosis. The ages of probability are most common from ages six to older sixties. Symptoms include sudden fever, chills, and headache. You might also have malaise, myalgia, nausea, vomiting, and anorexia. Most people will get a rash. There are many other infections that you can get from jumping in leaves.

Many symptoms of really any diseases include: fever, diarrhea, fatigue, muscle achiness, coughing. If you have been bitten by an animal, trouble breathing, coughing over a week, headache with fever, rash or swelling, unexpected fever, or sudden vision problems, I would go see a doctor. With all of these symptoms, the cause can be bacteria, a virus,  fungi, or parasite.

    Hey, Morgan, you mentioned ticks but in the article, you asked,” have you thought of how many bugs could potentially bite and make your sibling or child have an infection” which implies that there are other bugs that would be a problem.
