    Back to saftey..

    Had 2 dog ticks on the nape of my neck today.

    Shaved off the old top again.

    It feels good to get back into summer mode...

    I've never even seen a tick. My dogs have never had them either. But I hear this is a bad year for them out here.

    Dog tick = Brown tick, The one that carry's lyme disease is the deer tick, and lyme disease is no joke. That one is much smaller than the brown tick.

    You are right that this is going to be a bad year, i caught 4 brown tick's on me within 10 minute's last week. That's never happened before.

    i have working dogs and ticks are constant companions. a friend of mine grazes from the hollister hills to timberline and he says they're super thick this year. watch for deer ticks they carry lime.

    I was working on a valve that was stuck open 2 weeks ago. I threw my hat off in the grass and when i was finished I put it back on. A few minutes later i felt something crawling all over me. Took my hat off and there was 75+ seed ticks in my hat! I felt odd asking one of the lawn crew guys to pick them out of my head.

    The same thing happened to another one of my guys last week.
