Well, it seems the winter didn't do them in. Heck, if this winter can't hurt them I wonder when real good weather will be like.
Plus reading on google, it seems Ohio funding has gone down, yet the tick population is up. More and more cases of tick borne illness is up. Oh man... ------Willy I have to bomb the house with aerosol
I can't recall it ever being this bad. I got a few cats and they're coming in with "ticks". They hardly stay still to put medicine on them but I try. Regardless, it seems like this yr. is the of the "bloom". Last yr. I found them on me and on the pets but i was lucky. Now that was late in the season only slightly in the brush. Now, here it is fairly early and boy they're all over. I can't recall it ever being this bad and after this hard winter they're here big time. I think I'll have a bottle of bleach or peroxide in the barn for quick cleaning. I'm getting leery of going anywhere since I have to get into the brush now and then to retrieve trees(firewood) as the season gets on. I'll be wearing jeans alot longer now. I wouldn't normally comment on this, but its bad, IMHO. -----Willy
