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

Get your bug repellent ready. Tick season has officially started in Vermont and experts are saying it’s poised to be worse than usual.

A relatively warm winter has set the stage for a major surge of ticks during the spring and summer of 2019. Despite getting large amounts of snow, temperatures in the state weren’t sufficiently cold enough to put a dent in the tick population expected to pop up this May and June, officials say.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
