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

Three cheers for the warm weather! Now that the golden sunshine and warm temperatures have returned, most of us Pittsburghers spend more time outdoors – hiking, hanging out in local parks, and relaxing in our backyards. With the beautiful weather also comes the threat of ticks. Unfortunately, we’ll likely see an increase of ticks in the area in 2019.

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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
