Wood ticks are back out!!

9 posts in this topic

Picked a couple of wood ticks off one of my dogs the other night, one of them was one of those real small ones you hate to see, so I checked my other dog and sure enough, found a couple on her. I had used the One-spot stuff earlier in the year but as per usual the ticks 'go away' during the middle of the summer, but now a few are back out, so check your dogs!

I saw 1 deer tick each the last two weekends crawling on the dog. If they would have bit in the frontline would have got them I would think. Those deer ticks sure are small.

Frontline is a monthly application, so if your in dought of the last time you appied it, might as well do one more application for the season. I think the tick would have to make contact with the skin to recieve any of the chemicals from the product.

I use it monthly and was surprised to find a tick, but it has happened in the past also.

live near bemidji and last few times out grouse hunting, my two dogs have had numerous deer ticks on them. use frontline and seems to be working, as ticks are gone next the day. also get lymes shot every year.

Just got back from 2 trips grouse hunting in park rapids area ticks are real thick . I also put on frontline the day i left home to go hunting my dog had a number of ticks but the next day they were all dead i used a fine tooth comb after every hunt but i still managed to miss some but they were dead in his kennel the next day.I don't think frontline does much to repell them it just does a good job taking care of them after they attach themself.

Speak of repelling them, I've used Cedar Chips for a while now, and Sunday I caught a tick actually leaving the dog box. An old timer told me years ago that the cedar smell is too strong for a tick......I have always used cedar for the smell they give my dogs, and kept his comment in the back of my mind. I guess he was right!

Any additional ammo against this pests is never a bad thing!

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
