"Most pests come and go, they bite and they run away, they steal food quickly and return to their home. But with ticks, once they latch onto us, they stick around awhile. In fact, a fully grown adult tick can cling to a person for upwards of 10 days. Most people don’t check themselves at all times of the year."
"The CDC predicted tick bites to continually increase this year and, as the weather cools, this is certainly the case. It’s during the cool weather that ticks will seek warm bodies and warm locations on and in which to dwell."
"Ticks live and thrive in hot, humid climates like the climate typical to South Carolina during the summertime. The hot summers provide a humid subtropical climate and the winters are mild enough for ticks to remain active all year long. This creates a never-ending cycle of reproduction that can explode during the summer!"
"Now that summer has arrived, tick season is officially underway! You’ve probably heard a few tick horror stories by now and are likely to hear more as the season continues, and maybe even experience one!"
