Sorry. Here’s the deal. I heard a local news report tonight that the ticks with the new virus did increase last year in Wisconsin. From 1 infection to 4. Yes. 1 person to 4 people . So yes, there was an increase, but the numbers are very low.
Nonetheless, I cannot stand those little buggers.
I also discovered through a facebook friend’s post that opossum love to eat ticks. Guess what? So do wild turkeys and guinea hens. These wild turkeys were at the end of our driveway just a bit ago.
Welcome turkeys, opossum and hens! Come one come all and eat those ticks away.
We had a campfire around dusk tonight. More soft scarf knitting got done. I am now changing to deep purple and pink stripes. Towards the end of the scarf I may resume the berry/purple stripes. It is a very fun mindless knit.
Have a fantastic Friday my friends. See you in the comments
