OGB
you miss labeled the blood suckers----their Creeping blood suckers.
With all this rain--I am on alert for fleas---The little stinging sand fleas are vicious.

Treat the dogs constantly.

And the snake critters are waking up--hungray and nasty.

You lucky dog......... You got warm enough weather long enough for them to get active...... I still got 6" of snow in the yard and drive and the gravel road was thawed enough that now it is a mass of frozen slush and ruts...

At least tics can be pulled out and squashed when you find them... Politicians seem to be embedded forever.......

Enjoy

All I'm worried about are the fire ants. I have this habit of finding their beds in the yard by stepping in one and since I wear sandals 95% of the year I really know it. UGH! Last one I found seems to have disappeared on it's own though as the landlord showed me the bag of bait the other day and asked where the bed was again. When we looked we couldn't find it. I've never had that happen before so I'm keeping a close eye on the spot in case they come back.

I prefer the ticks... it's easier to get rid of them.
