Ticked off? Mild winter increases insect numbers this year

-A A +A
By Levi Berg

Unfortunately, this cold weather hasn’t slowed down the ticks.
They are out, and this year’s mild winter could have increased the amounts of ticks.
Just remember, tick season is here, and you need to prepare yourself when in the outdoors.
Ticks can be found anywhere from tall grass fields, woodland areas and your backyards.
There are three common types of ticks in Kentucky; the lone star tick, American dog tick and blacklegged tick.
These ticks will feed on humans, many mammals and multiple birds and can carry certain diseases.
