We have a big tick problem due to deer roaming all over the neighborhood. Our house backs up to the county park which is wooded with trails. Scout refuses to walk on those trails because the oak leaves have sharp edges. 😊 DH checks them for ticks daily because he takes them for hikes into the watershed area. Occasionally we have found a tick on Scout's face. Ticks in our area can carry Lyme disease.

I think Antarctica is about the only place where there are no ticks!!! I am sure some places are lots worse than others though. A man in southern Missouri where they are really bad has a YouTube where he walked across a field in a white suit maybe 50 feet and he had about hundred on him. I donít remember the exact number but something like that. They really hurt the baby fawns who are like sitting ducks laying in the grass. Often the poor fawns do not make it. The adults can handle it better.
