Not sure if this is a local thing but it seems like all the ticks I've seen this spring so far have been Lonestar ticks.

depending on which authority we have about 5 different species here and getting 20-30 ticks a day is not at all uncommon, at this time of year the Lonestars do seem more common but as summer progresses they will all make an appearance, maybe get all 5 in one day.

Picked 4 off back in mushroom season. Picked one off the other day after mowing. I walked a creek looking for arrowheads Sunday. I was in and out of the creek in tall grass. Didn't notice one all day. I consider this not to bad yet.

So far, this year there has been only a small fraction of the normal amount of ticks on my farm. Diane had 1 tick stuck in her hairline and one crawling on her leg. I pulled 4 off an outside cat's ears and 1 off of one of my dog's neck. I have not found a single tick on me. This is the first time, I have not had a tick by this late in the year. They were all dog ticks.

The deerfly have been terrible this year.

Ticks are Have good numbers this year. Usually as the summer enters July they seem to go away and in Aug. they seem to have disappeared all together.

We never had ticks in North east Saskatchewan until about three years ago. Now they are common, mostly deer ticks. They are disgusting things! Can't wait til fall and winter!

The Ticks are Terrible around here this year... There is also a New Tick disease been discovered by the cdc last year here in Missouri. Along with Lymes and the Meat allergy disease.
I try and stay out of the brush during the summer if I can.
