So I've heard some people are finding them already. :bdid: I hate the little *censored*s with a passion. Anyone seeing them yet?

Went shed hunting last weekend up in goldendale with my dad, I get a call from him later that night that he found a tick digging in on the back of his thigh. He burned it out and cleaned it with peroxide, but that wasn't enough. He ended up getting rocky Mountain spotted fever, and had to get antibiotics from the doctors. Not the best way to start the year in the woods.

Saw a post on FB about using one of those hair removing rollers.  It was covered in ticks :puke:  I plan on keeping one in the truck to catch any that are missed by the naked eye.

I haven't been out much the last couple weeks, but prior to that I picked up one on the eastside, and flicked several off in southern oregon. The dog picked up several in Oregon, but i had not treated her yet, after treatment she was clean here. If its above freezing they are moving imo.

I spray flea and tick spray on my pant and shirt cuffs. No ticks.

 Read on another page two days ago someone camping in Wenaha came home with ticks on them and their dogs. They didn't know what they were and had pictures asking wth?

Went out early Sunday morning on the south side of Spokane, that night driving home after working all day I had one crawling up the back of my neck... so yes, Spokane area they are popping up!

Baby powder has been found responsible for a certain genital cancer in women. 

As for ticks haven't seen any yet, still not convinced that isn't the cause of half my health issues. Stupid ticks.

I went for a quick walk behind my house the other day, a little bit later dishing up dinner I found one crawling up my neck.  Smallest tick I've seen, never had one on me over hear on the west side.  Hope that's not a sign of a very bad year, wonder if one more freeze would help kill them?

The little ones tend to be the bad ones. Did it look like our normal sized ones over east? The deer ticks are the bad ones.
