Give me your thoughts on ticks.
Why do we have them in our yard? LOTS of them in our yard. Is there something we can do to reduce their population?
How do you get your kids to agree to a tick check without freaking them out? Or is it just my son who freaks out a little bit at anything out of the ordinary?
What's the deal with "just pull them out so they don't regurgitate?" I thought if you pulled them out there was something to worry about too, like it leaves their little fangy head in and then that itches and spreads bacteria or something.
And finally, how do you keep the anxiety level down about all the diseases and just let your kids play? I had ticks when I was a kid and it seemed like no big deal. And probably it's not. But seriously....some ticks are more scary than others. And you can't really differentiate. Ya know?
