Even though April, May, & June are active months for ticks, September starts up again with the cooler temperatures and deer being active.

Ticks seek out their blood hosts by staying in high grass, trees, and bushes, so if you’re in or near these conditions, check yourself and pets closely before you return inside. A good tip to use on your clothes and your pets before entering inside is a lint roller. This can help remove the tick before they nestle down to the skin. Stay protected by continuing the use of a flea and tick product that deters and kills the little pesty critters. Stop by Wagsburgh to see the different protections available…from topicals and collars to all natural treatments and shampoos.
