PSA: Ticks are back

Apr Mon 23, 2018 8:03 pm

Sitting on my couch today after doing a little yard work and felt something crawling on my neck. Cornered the little sucker and determine that the ticks are back. Yesterday I was out doing so hiking by around so I’m not sure if he was a hitchhiker or if I picked him up today. I figured we had a couple more weeks but I guess not.

Wonderful :roll:

I thought the long winter would have diminished 'em, or at least give 'em a later start.

Big thanks for the heads up.

Unfortunately cold weather doesn't much effect the little bastards. Ticks can go dormant for years and spring to life whenever a warm blooded something passes within reach. Great argument against "intelligent design".
