The EPA reports, “Climate change has contributed to the expanded range of ticks, increasing the potential risk of Lyme disease, such as in areas of Canada where the ticks were previously unable to survive. The life cycle and prevalence of deer ticks are strongly influenced by temperature.” For us here in the Upper Valley, this means that ticks are active earlier in the Spring and later in the Fall than ever before. Last year, we saw ticks in December and February!
We now recommend pet owners to consider using 12 monthly doses of flea and tick control.
