We’ve all been wondering what the effect of the super cold Winter might be on our most dangerous nuisance pest, the Black Legged Tick or Lyme Tick. Well it appears to have had no effect at all. Wondering through the woods these last few warm days has resulted in numerous ticks on my pant legs. So beware and Be Aware folks. They are already active and they are numerous. Last year seemed relatively light on the tick front, if the rains continue on presents trends, we should expect a heavy year.
