Re: Ticks

I ran my bird dogs in northern Clinton on Friday. Saw none on either of them but did pick one off my own pants. Noah would have done us all a favor if he'd thrown at least one of them little devils off the boat!! I hate em' with a passion.

Re: Ticks

What a shame! I was hoping the extended cold this year would kill a lot of them.

Think before you share your thoughts!!!

Re: Ticks

So much for " we need a hard winter to kill these bugs". They are bad already. I'm sorry but something needs to be done. When you can't take the family out in the woods for an hour without pulling ticks off of everyone it's time to do something about it

Didn't put enough dirt down....saw it, right off

How do you suggest we kill them? I guess a wild population of guinea fowl would work, but that would just increase coyote/fox/hawk/etc numbers. The things are relentless.
