Also for what it's worth, ticks tend to be more of a problem in the foothills than in the upper elevations where the main parts of the park are located. I've worked in Sequoia for over 7 years and to this day have never heard of someone getting Lyme disease up here. As long as you take the proper precautions (as others have said, wear long pants, use bug spray, and check yourself just to make sure) and stick to the main areas of the park I don't think you'll have any problems.
