I picked up my first tick today, and my second and my third. I have a feeling that it is going to be a good year for the ticks.

Wrote this tech article a couple of years ago. But there are a lot of new names floating on the boards so, some might find it a new read. Seems to be an appropriate time to point to it again.

So tell me, why in the heck are ticks so abundant? No seriously. If you think of how many ticks you can pick up by walking just a short distance. What are the odds that any one tick gets to latch on to a host? I would think the odds are miniscule. But yet these critters are everyone. There has to be billions of them. How do they multiply if the average tick never gets to drink real mammal blood?

Many of them survived the winter because it was so mild.
