Ticks?

13 posts in this topic

anyone notice that they seem to be out in full force?

More so then later years. They normally hate me and wont come close, but this year they are loving me. None stuck in, but climbing on my legs.

I would say it's worst this year. I've seen ticks in wooded areas i haven't seen all my life there. Just read an articitle yesterday stating tick population has increase and moved further across MN.

Is there a spray you can use to rid your property of ticks? It seems to me I once read an article that there was something you could use. But I am not for sure, it might have just been a pipe dream after picking 2 dozen ticks off the dog one night. Frontline wasn't working for me, I switched to k-9 advantix, not much better for ticks, but it sure keeps the mosquito's off.

I think the cheap stuff they sell at wal-mart works just as good as frontline... IMO...

I found one on me the other day. I have no idea where I got it cause I haven't been close to any woods or anything remotely close to that for a while.

After looking for some shrooms one day I found 14 wood and 4 deer ticks on me, they are a lot worse this year.

Thats just a nasty feeling finding that many on ya. You sure you got them all, and I bet you still have the creepy crawly feeling of them on you.

I hate ticks. I will avoid the deep woods/grass until Late summer. There seems to be less then. My dad almost died last year from a woodtick bite. He got a disease called Urlickia (sp). It is similar to lyme disease. We thought he had a stroke until mom remembered the woodtick bite from a month previous. Scary stuff.......

I am using Sergeant's gold right now seems to do the best job of all that I have tried over the years... I tried the collar I think it was a hertz, that was useless, I found ticks on his neck right where the collar was.. Now if they invented something to keep my dog away from skunks I'd be real happy LOL... Besides a fence or kennel

I haven't put any Frontline on either of my dogs and they haven't had one tick yet this year. We have a small woods and tall grass in the back yard. Can't figure this out. Not one tick.

In the times I've been out turkey hunting this year, I've only had 2. But I usually spray my pant legs to the point of being soaked with tick repellent.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
