A Michigan State tick expert is warning Michiganders out camping and enjoying their Memorial Day weekend to be extra careful about ticks this year.
Weather conditions this year mean more ticks are on the prowl.
According to 9&10 News:
"We all know they are there, it's just being cautious and smart and using your head,” says Monica Wentz, a staff member at Camp Cadillac.
It's the creepy-crawly that tries to latch on to you when you are enjoying the outdoors.
And they're out in full force.
Researchers at MSU say tick populations have gone up considerably this year, alone because of the mild winter.
And the chances of coming across one this holiday weekend is likely."
