    Been in the UP dickinson county area the last 3 days. 23 degrees Thursday night when we camped. Woke up to 2" of snow this morning. Found 5 ticks crawling on the dog tonight.

    Well, even though I've been trying to monitor, I guess I wasn't the only one with a stowaway after the last trip. The one I mentioned earlier was crawling on me under my clothes. This morning I found one attached to Gibby's forhead. I got it off intact, but it was already swollen a little bigger than a grain of cooked rice. Had to get into work, so I'll have to go over her again tonight. Probably call the vet tomorrow and see if I need to get her something on my next day off Tuesday. I was right about the 30 day window since her last splash of bug dope. Guess I'm gonna have to try one of the others mentioned or do treatments more frequently.

    Haven’t found a single tick in NWLP this season. They were everywhere the past two years

    I got hit with them in Antrim County last year. Usually see a bunch up in the Pigeon, but didn't get any last trip, though it was wet.

    Glad to see I didn't come across any from pigeon.Spent four days up there.My clothes are treated with permethrin and the dogs are wearing soresto collars.Two collars are at the end of effectiveness and I was concerned a bit thinking about it.

    Yeah, I'm thinking I'll try your collar idea. The Pigeon/Joberg/Buttles areas can be bad in the summer. We have a had a couple good,, but short freezes already this year. Probably make another trip into the pigeon later this week or next weekend. I have yet to get any ticks out of the Deward area, though. Probably won't be hitting that area much more anyway. Gets a lot of pressure. Maybe all the ticks there have already jumped into the crowds before I got there?
