The artist investigates the use of different objects and materials in order to represent blackness, relying on language to suggest the underlying logic justifying his choices. Hammons’ culturally loaded titles often contain the key to interpreting the meaning of his works. For instance, High Level of Cats pokes fun at the pretence of “high” art and at the social aspirations of “cats” (the slang term for Afro-American men), literally placed at a “high level” atop traditional African drums.

Lyme Disease biologists have found that tick larva GET Lyme bacteria from feeding on mice & chipmunks in wooded areas. Predators of these carriers -- foxes, bobcats, raccoons, opossums-- reduce their numbers. This is a huge help, as Lyme disease risk is tied to how many mice & chipmunks ticks can find to feed on.   These predators, especially opossums & raccoons, also attract ticks, then in grooming themselves swallow/kill the ticks. They do not carry the bacteria either.
