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?

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.

A couple of years ago after coming back from turkey hunting I saw several on the ceiling of my truck. I sprayed it down with flea and tick killer, didn't matter every time I got in that truck I felt like I had one crawling on me. I eventually had to sell the truck (cheap) to someone that didn't care about them.

Lyme disease is carried by black-legged ticks west of the Cascade crest.

https://depts.washington.edu/ceeh/downloads/FF_Lyme_Disease.pdf

East of the crest, there is little to worry about. After climbing Snow Creek Wall in May or June, we used to go to Gustav's in Leavenworth for burgers and beer. I remember pouring beer in an ash tray, then finding ticks (scalp, neck, you name it) and placing them in the beer bath. Great entertainment while we waited for the burgers and fries. On the west side of the slope, the first few warm (70+ degrees) days are when you generally need to be cautious, although I'm hearing from multiple sources that ticks are out early this year.
