[at-l] Are there more ticks

I don't know about more this year than normal, but my daughter, who 
just got hired by the Army Corps of Engineers, picked up a few while 
traipsing in the woods a couple of weeks ago. A week or so later, she 
awoke with a fever and felt really badly and puked a few times, I 
believe. She went to the doctor and was tested for Rocky Mountain 
Spotted Fever (is that the same as Lyme Disease?) and was given four 
weeks' worth of antibiotics. Yesterday, the doctor called and said that 
she didn't have the disease and she stopped taking the medication.

Is there a tick repellent that she can use when she's out in the field?
