    Default Ticks

    Just a reminder to every one to check yourself and pets for ticks after being out in the great outdoors..I've already found 3 of them after being outside.

    I think ticks should be added to the list of known terrorists!

    There doesn't seem to be as many up my way, but every time we go to Southern Maine they are on our minds a lot.

    We've never had ticks in our area that I've seen, but if they're in Clinton (30 miles south), they're bound to be in our area soon!

    (But we have a guinea hen, which is supposed to LOVE ticks! We'll see...)

    I would love to have the guinea hen sit on my shoulder while I go hiking. I seem to be the tick magnet this year and have picked no fewer then two dozen off myself so far. Only a couple of the kiddos and a couple off my husband . . . and no I am not rolling around on the ground

    No bites yet though.

    Nope, no moose, but certainly a thought It has been horrible this year. I have given up caring until I pick one or two off and then I have the creepy crawlies

    Could be worse, they could be biting.

    My sister wants to go to Deer Island in Richmond . . . I said no way. Can you believe how many deer ticks there would be there!
