    Just a word to the wise. Check yourselves daily for tose pesky ticks. They can be more than a pest. I was down about a week with a tick related illness and I am still not 100%. <br> Ticks carry a variety of sickness that can be past on to humans. Lyme's Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Encphylitis to name a few.<br> Remember to check for and carfully remove these parasites. If they are buried and you have to remove, save it in a sealed jar just in case a doctor needs it.

    I learn't in the army to check hair,armpits,<br>balls and arse crack for ticks.They are a big problem here.I usually pull 1 or 2 off<br>a day. Remember to pull the head out as well<br>as they can still poison you after you <br>decapitate them.<p>Karl<br>

    I am in Hampton which is between Williamsburg and Va Beach. The infestation is bad here this year because of the mild winter.

    suggest you apply .97% Dursban granular at the appropriate rate and water in thoroughly.
