Tick season is here...

These little vampires have already shown up on household pets and kids; 'experts' say the massive tick population is due to all the snow we had that insulated the ticks and their eggs from the cold.

There's a black-legged tick that carries lyme disease and the one to especially watch out for.

Keep your lawn mowed and weeded, as these little suckers will cling to your pantlegs and your pet's fur...form there, they come into your home.

Best way to remove a tick? Put rubbing alcohol on it - it will then release it's grip -  and yank it out with tweezers.

If you spot and remove a tick early, you better your chances of infections.
