    My wife found a tick on her today. I don't recall ever seeing one this time of year. On Sunday my granddaughter and I were getting out of the truck to take a 4 wheeler ride & walk on the farm. As we were getting out of the truck she asked me if we needed to
    spray on some bug spray and I replied "not this time
    of year". Guess I was wrong.

    My hounds haven't went a month this winter without bringing at least one in.

    We also had a few encounters in February from these past years.

    We got covered in ticks on LBL back in December. My wife found a tick on her this past weekend.

    I hate those little blood suckers. I can't believe people are seeing ticks--in February!

    I read somewhere the skeeters are in full force now too. I'm hoping for a hard freeze and kill these all off.

    I've saw a few ticks in Livingston County last weekend but I'm more concerned with the chiggers. I didn't get any bites so I'm glad.

    I've seen tiny black ants and those slimy snail slug things on my back patio all winter long. No surprise on ticks as tough as they are.
