Traditionally, there have been 2 TICK seasons:

Spring and Fall

 

THIS YEAR (2016) TICKS HAVE BEEN FOUND ON FAMILY DOGS IN EARLY MARCH WITH SNOW STILL ON THE GROUND!

ITASCA COUNTY HAS BECOME AN EPICENTER OF LYME DISEASE, AND OTHER TICK-BORN MALADIES THAT CAN EVEN PROVE FATAL IN A SHORT TIME, OR DEABILITATING FOR A LONG TIME.

 

Be Careful to TickCheck yourself, your children and your pets (even if using Frontline protection).
