I thought I checked myself over pretty good, but last night I found a tick on me.

YUK!!!!

I hate them. With all our warm weather and rain here, I guess they are out in numbers.

Anyway to make them stay off you.

I checked the dogs, they are tick free.

Because of the warmer winter we had, it looks like fleas and ticks are going to be bad this year. They've been pretty bad here the last 2 years.

I keep checking the pups - understand the winter was not cold enough to help kill them. I use Bio Spot on mine which was recommended by a breeder

It's bad in our area. Don't see to many stink bugs. I think we have birds in our area that eat them. :D

haave not seen any ticks here but then i keep Tick & flea on them monthly

Stink bugs have no natural enemies but I have seen a few but have St. Gabriels' spray that I use and it will repel them or kill them

We had ticks really bad here....one year it will be fleas, the next ticks. Just as I got rid of them, then I'd get a new foster & there they'd be. So Cheryl got some comfortis & we started putting them on the fosters as soon as she got them from the farms. Then I didn't have to put anything on my dogs because that stuff really got rid of them.
Try Skin So Soft by Avon, it keeps alot of bugs away. I haven't found any ticks on me, but about a year ago when we were taking some dogs to St Louis, I found one of me. I always write down the date so if I get sick, I know why...but so far so good.
