So, I'm a tree planter up here in British Columbia. Have been for some years now, and dude - this spring is crazy. I have had to deal with ticks in the past, but for some reason (maybe the low snow pack this winter?) the ticks are out in force this year.
the reason of this thread is to ask how the tick situation is in your region? I hear they are bad just south of here in Washington, but is this a wide spread thing, or just the dry regions of the south interior of BC and northern PNW. I hate the bastards and have been analizing their behavior, and because I have to deal with them on a daily basis, have become quite interested in them. So, is this a widespread thing? If so, are you guys getting all tick paranoia as well?
Luckily the ticks in this region (Rocky Mountain Wood Tick mostly) don't carry Lyme Disease, but they do have "tick paralasis", which doesn't sound very fun.
Spark notes: I hate parasites, especially those that have diseases that kill! Ticks are crazy this spring. having tick problems?
