Deer Ticks on the Rise in Southern and Eastern Wisconsin
We have had a number of complaints from clients that they are seeing more ticks on their dogs this Spring than ever before, often after topical application of tick preventatives like Frontline Plus or Parastar Plus. Does that mean the products aren't working? Not necessarily.
We asked UW-Madison tick expert Professor Susan Paskewitz about this problem. She said this:
"Deer ticks have been steadily increasing in numbers and expanding the range in southern and eastern Wisconsin. In Madison, we couldn't even find them 4 years ago, yet we picked up more than 100 adults on April 26 in a small urban conservancy on the east side. So, one thing that may be different for your clients is that the density of ticks suddenly could be higher than it has ever been in their particular area and so they notice more ticks on the animals."
