PS- We're in Greenville/Smithfield
You live near us, mama!! We have picked off a few ticks and starting seeing them in the beginning of March.
I read a study URI did about ticks and b/c of the rains last summer there was a surge then, there is suppose to be even more this summer b/c of the amount that laid eggs last summer/fall. Sigh. We had a lot of water flood our yard and since then we haven't found one tick on the kids! Thinking it was high enough and stayed long enough to kill some nests/eggs/hatchlings maybe?? I hope so!
Jenny, when we found out we were moving to RI I searched for natural tick sprays and found Mosquito Barrier. We never did buy/use it, how did it work?
In the 2 years we have lived here I have come to know far too many people w/ Lyme's.
It's terrible. I have seen it do some awful things and wish you all the best with tick season! Our family is moving back to the NW where there is no worry about bugs like ticks, black flies, mosquitos, etc. Good, luck mamas
