 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.

Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Hard to believe this will be a bad year for them, after the winter we had.

One of my pups picked one up today in our yard.  Burrowed into the top of her head

Iv had one tick in my life.   a couple years ago i found one in my belly button hole while taking a shower after a day of hunting.  after i coaxed him outa there i couldn't believe how i never felt it.  you can feel the smallest sliver but not a big ol fat tick. :dunno:
