   Ticks - UGH!  We know!

But we think the more you know, the better equipped you are to deal with them. This picture, compliments of The University of Maine Cooperative Extension, is an engorged female deer tick. The link below will take you to the Tick Identification Lab's Tick Photos, where you'll find pictures of various stages of Deer Ticks and American Dog Ticks. At the bottom of the page, there is a link to their home page, where you will find links to more useful tick information.
