    Good grief! I thought the cold winter might have reduced the number of ticks this year...apparently not.

    Yeah me!! I was at that end in the larder!! There was hardly any room for more ticks so they start sooking on each other,regular you see 2 ticks on a adult tick.I heard from a source that there was tests done on them,they were put in a freezer at whatever teperature for a period of time and they came back to life no bother.Bang goes the therory of hard winters!!

    Ewwwww, I hate ticks. As to spot on for humans there is a product you could try to get hold of.

    When i was in texas they always used "OFF", so do as the locals and we never had a bite. I mean out there theres not just lymes disease but west nile and other horrible maladys. Not sure if its available in the UK.
