We’ve been hearing all summer that ticks are worse this year than last year, but is it true? Hancock County Extension Educator Ed Lentz says not really, but we’re more likely to be where there are ticks this year…
Because of last year’s drought, there wasn’t as much vegetation for ticks to hide in.
Lentz adds ticks are tricky, because they instinctively latch on to where it’s the hardest for us to find them.
