My dog came in last night with 3 ticks, the weather is still very cold outside, is this early for ticks?
Ticks start coming out of their winter habitat on February 12th each year. That movement is triggered by the position of the sun. They start looking for a blood supply immediately. We have been treating for ticks for several weeks already. Don’t worry if you haven’t cleared up an left over leaves. Its a good place for them to hang out and an even better place for us to kill them
I am doing my own fertilizing this year and only buying Organic. How do I know that I am buying a good Organic Base Fertilizer?
I am so pleased to hear you are going organic. Bravo!
But please be aware that when you see a label or advertising that it’s ‘organic based’ that’s a guarantee that it’s not organic. Organic based products contain chemicals, usually nasty pesticides so you are not getting what you expect and your family’s health is still in jeopardy.
Also look out for the ‘organic’ products that are made from human sewage sludge. They often end in ‘….. Ite.’ So beware or call me for free, friendly advice.
