My wife and I went up to Ringwood - where you park on the left of Skyline drive (coming from Oakland) and then hike on the other side of the road - there's like a 1.5-2 hour loop there. We came back with no fewer than 20 ticks on us (including another friend and dog.....but still... 20!!!!). Half of them were attached. WATCH OUT.

The ticks are every where! My husband got one in our back yard here in Camden County and it was attached to his ankle. It left a nasty looking hole.

Deep Woods Off does a good job of keeping them at bay. I have found them on my dogs, but they are on preventative, and so far none have attached themselves. Nasty things!

Yeah, I don't know what the deal is this year. Where i live in Va. we have had more than what seems normal. I had one just crawling through my car and I had not even been to any wooded area, or place where it would seem normal to get one. The little bastids freak me out! Good luck avoiding them!

Just make sure you check for a bulls-eye rash or if you develop mild flu-like symptoms. While dog ticks arent the usual vector for Lyme Disease they can carry other diseases.

Permethrin is the best prevention out there. Clothing is sprayed and it dries. Not cheap but works the best.
