We go on one little hike at a new park and this is what happens.

Ticks!! Covered Taricha.
My sister and I sat Taricha down and spent a good 20 min picking them off.
And I still keep finding more.
and more.

Guess we wont go there again!

It was a paved walking path so this was a bit unexpected...
but I suppose there were lots of over hanging trees.

We use Frontline plus but I guess that takes a little time, for the tick to attach, die and fall off.
Now we're on the hunt for a dog safe tick repellent...
cause this is nuts.


  1. Holy crap. We have a feeling your are still looking

  2. Yikes, and you are in Shawnee? Not very far from us in OP. We only walk on paved walkways too. It is so hard to find the ticks in our thick coats. We have been using Vectra but our vet stopped carrying it and has something new that we are going to try but Mom can't think of the name of it.

    1. I bet ticks are impossible to find in your coats! Specially the itty bitty micro ones! There are many reasons I enjoy my pup's short coats hehe!

  3. Wow that is a lot of ticks....we rarely have them where I am. yikes.
