Extension Calling: advice for the farm, garden, and home

Nov 26, 2023

Many believe ticks aren't a danger in the winter. Unfortunately, they are wrong. Ticks do slow down in colder temperatures, but they are still active. Take precautions whenever you are in tick habitats like brush and woods for deer ticks, mown grass for dog ticks, and tall grass for asian longhorned ticks. Also stay vigilant with pets and livestock to protect them from disease and potential death in some cases. Visit to make sure the repellent you are using works for ticks. For livestock owners, this is a great watch from OSU Extension:  Checking cattle for ticks
