Are there any health/safety issues with really long grass - a pal told me you can get some disease and tics?

In brief: True

With long grasses there will be bugs.
. Nature doesn't adapt to us we adapt to her. So wear long pants, boots, long sleeves in long grasses and check for ticks after hiking, playing, etc. Ticks carry disease...So common sense and being prepared...Understanding the environment will help.
