    Cranberry Farming Has a History in NJ (Thanksgiving Recipe Included)

    I just made cranberry sauce with Jersey fresh cranberries. It'll be just the two of us, and we'll have leftovers for months. I also made this pie. Yes, that's Covid on it. Happy, safe, healthy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Ticks & Chiggers--a study

    Bob, great photos. They show very clearly an easy way to identify a black-legged tick. The ventral (belly) view shows what's called the adanal groove, or an arch that surrounds the tick's anus. No other genus of ticks has this and it's a very quick way to ID what you have.

    Tick control?

    The lone star tick larvae are out and about through about September, and then in Oct/Nov, the adult deer ticks come out. Seems it's always tick season.

    Tick control?

    I don't think they'd use the stuffing in the tubes to nest with.

    Tick control?

    Caveat: They work for Black-Legged ticks and other species that use small rodents for intermediate hosts, but aren't likely to make a big difference in populations of Lone Star ticks, since they don't bite rodents nearly as much.

    Tick control?

    They come highly recommended from me. They're not new, they've been around for quite a while.
