I saw on Fox25 news that there is a new “Tick” in Town!!!! The Lone Star Tick. The news stated that “They’re very fast about three times as fast as a normal tick. In addition to its speed, it also has excellent vision and attacks in “swarms. This tick can cause Rocky Mountain Fever, which they said is a lift threatening disease.
Being a pet owner, I am concerned. They recommend tick prevention “Year Round”. They also, said to walk dogs on hard surfaces or on well-worn paths, keep away from bushes and leaves.
Enjoy the warmer weather, but keep an eye out for yet another tick!
