TICKS: Fact, fiction and protection.

Tick-borne disease expert Dr. Thomas Mather conducts tests that determine frigid temps not likely to reduce Spring/Summer tick abundance.

Have you been wondering (or hoping) that these brutal polar vortex weather episodes sweeping the eastern half of the nation are freezing off blacklegged (deer) ticks? It'd be nice, right?

He and his team recently conducted a series of tests to determine if the dreaded ticks are dead or alive... Have a look at the results.
