You Won’t Be Happy To Hear That Alaska Is Experiencing A Major Surge Of Ticks This Year

Alaska’s state bird may be the mosquito, but we’ve rarely been bothered by ticks. With all of the wildlife you can expect to find in this state, the tick hasn’t been one we’ve had to watch out for just yet! Unfortunately that may begin to change. It looks like we’re starting to find more and more non-native ticks in Alaska.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
