Something is up.
Either everyone is suddenly talking about it, where they didnít before, or thereís a veritable plague of Ticks upon the land.
Itís been a frequent topic amongst friends and acquaintances of mine around here, across the country and even in the US. Itís clearly a more common than usual observation amongst UKB posters, too.
Lack of long enough cold/subzero temperatures last winter? Shift in pesticide habits? Explosion/collapse in hedgehog (/a.n.other tick bearing mammal) population?
