Dill talks with BDN, Press Herald about spring tick activity

Griffin Dill, manager of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s Tick Lab, spoke with the Bangor Daily News and the Portland Press Herald about tick behaviors, warning that deer ticks generally become active when the temperature rises above freezing. According to Dill, last year’s drought conditions did not appear to negatively impact adult tick numbers, which seem normal so far this spring.
