Re: why are there so many ticks
I agree, ticks are blossoming! We used to never have ticks here in Maine, now it seems, they are everywhere! I use a product called "Bio-Spot" on my dogs. It's all natural and is effective against fleas, ticks AND mosquitos and it actually works! I've used it for 3-4 years. It's a lot less expensive than other "flea/tick" products and your animals are protected and can go in the water and a 3 month supply costs no more than $15.-20. What I'm running into with my dogs is that they are ALWAYS scratching! My vet calls it allergies, but I've never had my springers scratch like they are in the last two years or so. Even the "Bio-Spot" helps some, but doesn't stop it. I've changed dog food, and that helps some, but they still scratch a lot until they get some parts of themselves raw. Any ideas?
