Re: Deer (Blacklegged) Ticks
Deer ticks and lime disease are also prevelant where I live. In my experience, lighter colored clothing seems to not attract them as much. It is also easier to see them if they are on your clothes. For some reason when my husband and I go out together the ticks always wind up on him rather than me, not sure why…
I have heard great things about chickens keeping down the bug populations. We will be getting chickens next month (May) for the first time. I will let you know if I notice a difference.
