5-17-15 Tick Talk Continued…

The word on the street is ticks are bad all over Ohio this year.  I’m really not sure what ‘word on the street’ means I guess it is the current scuttlebutt.

Ohio’s outdoors folks reporting an explosion of ticks in Buckeye woods and fields this spring.

How to remove a tick and products that can help you do it.

So I have embarked on a new adventure to reduce the chances of contact by adding an insecticide to my weed control while I am applying to the natural grass.  I have currently applied to 33 acres on the front-9 and have an estimated 16 acres to go.  (The natural areas have never been accurately measured.)  Then I go off to the back-9.

As you can see we have already started to trim the natural on the back so I can spray for weeds and keep the critters at bay.  This is not a permanent solution and we will NOT be able to keep them out of the tall grass and the woods.

So the best advice I can give you is to keep it in the short stuff.   If you go into the tall grass or woods when you are done examine yourself for the offending critters.

Full information is on Tick Talk.
