Went out this afternoon to check on a few spots, walked about 15 minutes through some 12 inch high weeds and stickers and had about 20 tics on my grey sweat pants. Checked myself ever 5 minutes and more each time. With this crazy weather, nothing is going to die off and this year will be bad for bugs. Need that cold snap, even the deer don't know whats going on, saw a bunch of scrapes and rubs and all the bucks here still holding those antlers.

Too late for a deep long lasting freeze to kill the ticks. They burrow down a good ways into the soil, so it would have to be a long cold snap to kill any of them.
Farmers are already starting to disc the fields....spring is around the corner!

I'm waiting for the bear sightings to begin. Especially after today and tomorrow. We were hiking with the dogs on Sunday and there were BUGS. It's February. I want a winter already.

I was hunting with my brother a few weeks back. We walked through the same crap while doing pushes. He had 12 tics on him... I had 1. I think it was his pants. They were sticking to him like glue and I think they were falling off me.

not by my house they wont be. I ordered a dozen praying mantis egg sacks, so if all goes well I will have hundreds to thousands of praying mantis's around my home to destroy the populus of stink bugs, mosqitos, ticks and other insect vermin!
