Ticks Seem Unfazed by the Endless Winter of 2017-18

Beware of ticks!It's April 14 and we're getting another foot of snow here in Traverse City. I'm thinking that there has to be some redeeming quality to this. Maybe not.

Seems that at least in the Northeast, this winter hasn't had an impact on ticks. Ugh. A nice thick blanket of snow seems to insulate the bastards.
