Yes—we said it. It’s never too early to begin talking about ticks.
If you live in New England, we’re sure you’ve heard that ticks are not only an incredible nuisance to have to deal with and worry about, but they also come with a serious health risk of tick-borne diseases such as Lyme.
The two main types of ticks that we should be concerned with in New England are Blacklegged “Deer” Ticks and American Dog Ticks. It’s a well known fact that Deer Ticks are the ones we are worried about when it comes to contracting a tick-borne disease. They also happen to be the ones that are extremely difficult to spot due to their miniscule size.
