You Won’t Be Happy To Hear That West Virginia Is Experiencing A Major Surge Of Ticks This Year
We would be hard pressed to name one person we know who doesn’t feel uncomfortable at the mere thought of finding a tick on ourselves, our children, or our pets. However, this spring is one that’s expected to bring more of these creepy little parasites than usual – and we have Mother Nature to thank, in more ways than one.
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/
For additional important information about ticks, including how to avoid them and what signs to look for if you have been bitten, see this page on the official website of the CDC.
