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

While summer is always a welcome season here in Virginia, there are a few downfalls that come with the warm weather.

One of them is the ultimate pest: the tick. While small and seemingly harmless, these insects can carry a variety of diseases that could be harmful. And unfortunately, officials believe that so much rainfall this past year could result in even more tick sightings this season. On the bright side, there are ways to lookout for these insects and make sure you remain tick-free and happy this season.
