I know that it is early. But, with the weather being warmer. I have been told that the ticks are out in force in N.E. Ohio and N.W. Pa. So, that means the southern boys that are getting ready for turkey season, soon. Please remember to check yourselves every time you come out of the woods. Don't want to hear that you got LYMES for being stupid and not checking yourself. LYMES is NO picnic. I have taken care of many people with it. No fun. davep

I spray all my hunting /woods clothing with pemetherine now and haven't had a tick on me since starting to do this.

Had one dig into my bicep Friday just doing a quick camera check in Central PA. The first warm up of the year is historically when I see them the worst and most aggressive at biting all year and they seem to get worse and worse with each new year. I spray some of my stuff with permetrin but don't place blind faith in it. We do live with religious checks for me and all the family members going by the 24 hour rule for lyme transmission. I get average of 4-5 bites per year, but so far lyme-free because I get them all removed right away. That is far and away the most important preventative measure.

Permethrin has been a game changer. I hunt some tick infested spots with a low incidence of Lyme's but always concerned me especially with young ones starting to tag along. Since using Permethrin I have had zero in me and very few on my clothes. I've gone a few weekends without ever seeing one anywhere which was unheard of before.

Permethrin is your friend. It's one of few things you buy that works as well as advertised.

My banties and guineas keep our place tick free, but we rarely see ticks up here though the moose are infested with them. My brother is the state fruit specialist and working orchards has contracted lymes twice. Apple trees attract deer with deer ticks and the southern part of our state has a lot of deer.

Timbr X4085493204985040984.00009 That stuff does work as well as everybody says. Even better with ticks than Thermacells with mosquitos.

I'm in northern Illinois and we've been pulling them off the dog now for 2 weeks. And she doesn't really spend all that much time outdoors either.

This year's going to be BAAAAD with ticks.

Well, just talked to my neighbor. He told me that he got Lymes last fall. Check yourself when you come home.
