Well, you know it’s that time of year, when just a small, black hole in a blanket makes you think tick. I shake garlic powder on the dogs’ food to help them repel critters. I also give them the drops, like Advantax. I have to check myself every time I come in from working on the farm.
And once you find one, you’ve got the heebie jeebies when anything touches your skin, like say, a thread. I know they must serve some purpose in our ecosystem, but I’m killing every one of those little parasites. Can you tell that I don’t care for ticks.
