It’s a fact that colder winters can help cut down the tick population. Unfortunately, this past winter in Missouri was a bust when it came to the right conditions for ticks to be a bit less plentiful.
Personally, I started seeing ticks out and about in March this year!
My daughter even found one on her in early April when she simply walked around our backyard.
All signs are pointing to a fairly annoying tick season coming upon us.
With more people out hiking, fishing, camping, and enjoying time in nature, it’s important to remain tick aware.
With that said, there’s steps we can take to decrease our chances of tick bites that can lead to potential infections, diseases, or in some rare cases, death.
