    Good to know. I always wondered why it didn't grow back in subsequent years. I always let them go in my garden, I love them.

    Permethrin ads

    To be fair, there are a lot of permethrin products that are approved for dogs, and that have been found safe and effective. Some of them have been bestsellers (like K-9 Advantix).

    You think ticks are bad?

    The stink bugs in my house look alarmingly like kissing bugs. The only way to tell the difference, other than size, is the flat area on the rear legs. (flat area = stink bug, no flat area = kissing bug). The stink bugs have the marginal orange stripes and everything.

    Kittens, cute but sad

    Lots of non-feral cats are euthanized in shelters because there aren't enough homes for them all, and feral adult cats are pretty hard to tame and take a lot of time. A lot of them will never become tame enough.

    Ticks & Chiggers--a study

    Tick larvae have six legs just to confuse people. :) And as far as I know, all tick species start out that way, even the soft ticks (argasid). They feed, drop off and molt into an 8 legged nymph. Their 4th pair of legs are in the larva under the shell (scutum). I actually have no idea why they...

    I promise, it's perfectly kosher in North America. There is a website that's operated by Oklahoma State University called, check it out. You can send any ticks you find on a dog or cat to them for ID, gratis. Plus whoever named that website is a genius (actually I know...

    Ticks & Chiggers--a study

    They're probably larvae from lone star ticks. The larvae show up in huge numbers right about now because adults emerge in the spring, find a host, feed and drop off, and lay eggs in huge masses, and then the egg masses hatch into giant balls of evil, all of this takes a couple months.
