If it even does it at all ....I have not googled this but obviously where it’s really cold has snow. ticks hibernate during the winter under the leaf litter under the snow, so it is a little warmer there.
North central US has had less snow this season and currently weeks of the coldest temperatures in the lower 48 states. Perfect tick extermination weather scenario.....if that even happens.
third week of below zero Fahrenheit night temps and was -40 to 50 below zero F just last weekend (not including additional windchill factor). I sometimes partake in summer outdoor adventure there. This is what bring this question to my mind.
There is normally not many ticks in that area to begin with probably because that region is the coldest part of the continental US, but I’m hoping next summer there might be even way less.
