Preparing for an overabundant season
Ticks. We hate ‘em. We don’t even know any but hey, there just isn’t a lot to not hate about a parasite whether it be an insect or any other species.
And man, if you talk to hikers lately ticks are bound to arrive in the conversation sooner than descriptions of rugged treks or spectacular vistas.
This year they are apparently arriving in droves anxiously awaiting the opportunity to hop onto 2 or 4 legged creatures.
Here at N3 World Headquarters & Deer/Rabbit Vegetable Gardens there has been significant research of late on finding the ultimate tick-plucking tweezers to be had.
We’ll keep you posted.
Here’s some info is from our friends at DHD#10:
June 03, 2021 – Areas across Michigan, including Northern Michigan, are seeing an explosion of tick activity this year. As the weather becomes nicer and people head outdoors to enjoy nature, District Health Department #10 (DHD#10) reminds everyone to exercise proper precautions to prevent human-tick interactions.
Proper precautions include:
Michigan also offers tick identification resources to residents and visitors for free. Physical ticks can be placed in a container and mailed to MDHHS, or photos may be submitted to MDHHS-Bugs@michigan.gov
Questions regarding ticks and other vectors should be directed to DHD#10’s Environmental Health Division at 888-217-3904.
