Tick, tick, tick

I was reminded of this article when I was giving my kids a bath the other day after they were out in the woods. The article is “Mosquitoes, Ticks Spring up early in Wake of Mild Winter” by Blythe Bernhard at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

That article in turn sort of goes hand in hand with these two articles relating to the issue of the arly spring. The two articles are “Early Spring Sets Much of U.S. Awash in Color and Pollen Dust” by Kim Severson at the New York Times and “Much to Savor and Worry About Amid Mild Winter’s Early Blooms” by Lisa W. Foderaro, also at the New York Times. It’s that mild part that also speaks to the mosquitoes and ticks this year.
