Ticks in winter?
I am in Berlin. It is 3 am. and I just found a tick crawling up my leg. Okay, I went for a long walk in the woods this afternoon, but it's been snowing all day for crying out loud. Maybe this tick was hibernating in the dog bed, I don't know...do ticks hibernate? All the dog/cat bedding is sealed in bags for the moment. Has anyone heard of ticks in February? Can anyone help me out here? I apologize for the slightly desperate tone, but ticks in the wee hours tend to get to me. Especially in the middle of a snowstorm.
Many thanks in advance,
