With more time spent outdoors, it is a good time to get into the habit of checking for ticks, those small bloodsucking parasites, many of which transmit diseases to animals and people.

According to Griffin Dill, pest management specialist for UMaine’s Cooperative Extension, ticks typically spend the winter months in a state of dormancy among the leaf litter under the snow.  Now with warmer temperatures, the risk of Lyme disease is great.
