The mild winter seemed too good to be true. And it was. The downright tolerable temperatures allowed an unprecedented number of ticks to survive and, according to the news, they’re out in force this year.
If you’re the kind of person — like me — who lives in a constant state of unease, believing that bugs exist primarily to crawl on you, summer is already a nerve-wracking time of itchy paranoia. Now there’s a bumper crop of critters that want to bury themselves in your skin, suck your blood and spread disease.
Kill me now.
