Ticks are back!

Sadly it's not the Tick, who is easily my most favorite hapless superhero. Instead it's the horrible blood sucking kind that leave itchy welts that you swear are never, ever going to go away. Mr. Dell seems to be a bit of a tick magnet, I pulled three off of him tonight. So it's time to break out the Frontline and dose the dogs.

Last year was a very mild tick season, the drought definitely had a negative impact on the local tick population. But this year looks bad, we've had tons of rain and no winter to speak of. A good solid freeze helps knock back the bugs and we only got a few days of cold weather interspersed with freakishly warm days.

Oh and in case anybody is wondering about the title, go watch this over at YouTube.
