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,
Akell

good god.

Ticks in the winter.

Ugh. I thought we only had to deal w/them in the spring and fall.

What a pain in the a$$.

Make sure someone checks you out pretty good, you know your hair and esp. behind the ear.

While ticks are most prevalent in the spring and fall, they can actually be found all year long. Sounds like you got unlucky...at least it didn't bite you!
