There’s A “Tick Explosion” Coming This Summer With Cases “Skyrocketing”

Here's what you need to know

    In case you didn’t know, this is going to be the summer of the tick! In fact, it seems that tick season has already started for many of us. Just today I had a pest control company out at my house to spray for fleas and ticks because they’re already everywhere.

    Tick season has already started where I live. I’ve already had my 11 year old son at the doctor after removing a tick from his stomach last week. I’ve taken countless of those creepy crawly little insects off my poor dog. I even ordered one of those $5 plastic tick removers off Amazon because it seems that tick season will be relentless this year.

    I’m used to ticks because we’ve always had lots of them where we live. We have a really large deer population and I’ve woken up to entire families of them in my backyard more than once. I haven’t had to deal with them on my kids this early in the season though.

    Unfortunately, tick season is going to get much worse before it gets better. While I have my kids conditioned to do a full body check every day to check for ticks, parents need to know what to look for.
