Yesterday was a pretty nice day, some gardening etc, decided to go look for some morel mushroom, none up yet so came back home and did some minor "2do"s". Took a shower before bed time and found a miniscule teeny tiny deer tick embedded in my left arm pit. Now I can not say that I was surprised, I am a tick magnet--younger guys like to think that they are "Chick magnets" when young but at my age I have to be happy with "tick magnet". I often wonder how in the world are there so many ticks in todays environment, is it a coincidence, is it a result of a erroneous experiment, is it a cycle of nature? I sure do not know the answer. Anyone have any ideas as to why this explosion of the tick population has occurred?
