Adult Ticks Very Active This Fall (via

STROUD TOWNSHIP — On this nice October day, Michael Hitzges from Newfoundland took a walk around Brodhead Creek Park near Stroudsburg.

But after the walk, Hitzges checked himself and his son for ticks. He’s Seen firsthand that the tiny critters are still a big problem this time of year.

“I actually found a tick on him the other day, and it probably came in from one of our dogs. They are not gone yet and especially with the prevalence with deer ticks in the area,” said Hitzges.
