Re: why are there so many ticks
I called this supposed tick expert He has a Phd in bug study (entomology?) and specialized in ticks. I first thought ticks were a result of the excessively warm winters we had been having (this year was colder so I'm more optimistic)but he said the cold didnt have much to do with it .He said the deer population was the cause. I told him not in this case. The deer poulation is drastically reduced from what it was , and back when you could see 20 or more deer on the first day, there were No ticks. He got angry because I mentioned this and ask if I was trying to argue with him. I told him I was just looking for the cause of the ticks coming in To make a long story short ,He had had no valid reasons at all. His supposed Phd education was sadly lacking. He was more interested in pretending he was smart than actually thinking about it. I read the other post about DDt maybe there is something to that. I still dont know why ticks are here now.
