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.


Will my toes ever cool down?

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!

Thick here. Found 16 on my clothing after a short mushroom hunt. None stuck on me though.


I will gladly feast on those who would subdue me.

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.

We didn't have tics here when I was a kid. We would go to family in Kentucky and pick them off all day long. Seems like they showed up in the 90s.

Wonder how much of that was due to DDT.

First Longhorned tick discovered in Arkansas

http://katv.com/news/local/longhorned-tick-discovered-in-arkansas

LITTLE ROCK (KATV) The Department of Agriculture has confirmed that a Longhorned tick was found in Arkansas, making it the fourth state to be spotted in within the United States .

The identity of the tick was confirmed at the National Veterinary Services Laboratory, where it was sent in from a dog in Benton County through a research project at Oklahoma State University.

The Longhorned tick, an exotic East Asian tick, is considered to be a serious threat to livestock by the USDA, possibly causing stunted growth , decreased production, and death.

The tick has been known to infest a wide range of species and has the potential to infect a variety of North American wildlife species, humans, dogs, cats, and livestock.

In other parts of the world, the longhorned tick, or Haemaphysalis longicornis, is associated with bacterial and viral tickborne diseases of animals and humans.

Similar to deer ticks, the nymph of the longhorn tick is very small, making it harder to spot and allowing it to go unnoticed on animals and people.

The first confirmed presence of the longhorn tick in the United States was discovered in New Jersey in November of 2017, followed by Virginia and West Virginia.

The cases in Arkansas, West Virginia, Virginia, and New Jersey are not believed to be connected, according to the USDA.

State Veterinarian Dr. Brandon Doss released this statement following the discovery of the Longhorned tick in Arkansas:

Livestock producers, animal owners and veterinarians should notify the Arkansas Agriculture Department or USDA APHIS if they notice any unusual ticks, or ticks that occur in large numbers on an individual animal. We encourage livestock producers to work with their veterinarians to develop a tick prevention and control program.

To protect you, your family, and your pets from ticks you should always wear approved repellents, perform regular tick checks, and tuck in loose clothing.

I can say I think there are less in my yard this years so far. Based on what I've taken off my self and the dogs since snow is gone. But I've been spraying with the permethirn. So no idea what there like in the woods right now. Did take this one off me while splitting wood in yard Tuesday. Little stinker!
