“Ticks have to be attached and feeding before they can transmit disease, and for disease like Lyme disease they have to be attached for 24 hours. It’s important to check yourself for ticks and to get them off before they become attached.” – Laura Iles

Every growing season brings a unique set of insects, diseases and challenges for gardeners, homeowners and farmers.
