Lyme is everywhere...
150 birds migrate from the NE all over the world. Thus carrying these tiny ticks and flees everywhere.
The Texas Lone Star tick has made it up to Cape Cod...
Everyone needs to take B-1 to repell these bugs.
Every state in the USA has it, and if you read on line..it is a problem everywhere in the country.
And if you believe in global warmning or not...well the insects will fare better inthe heat than us.
But ticks hate direct hot sun. But they love trees, bush, and grass. And you can have your yard sprayed.
Ticks also hate clorox.
Drop one in there and see...lol
I have my patios cleaned with clorox once a month and wash my dogs beds ever 2 days. And have the yard sprayed. And do not take my dogs off of my property.
