Pest Fact ....Ticks and Winter Weather

Did you know that blacklegged (deer) ticks, carriers of Lyme disease, like to spend the winter nestled in the fur of a deer?  If you have deer in your yard this winter, your pet may come into contact with ticks.

As long as temperatures stay below 35° F, ticks remain inactive. On warmer days, however, those ticks may be out looking for a blood meal. Anytime temperatures rise above 35° F, you should take precautions to avoid tick bites, just as you do in summer months.
