They're ticking people off

More ticks are out and about in Lawrence, according to Greg Burg, Kansas University professor of medical and veterinary entomology and insect ecology. Burg studies ticks, both dead and alive, in his lab at Haworth Hall. He said people will see more ticks this season than in the past two years because the wet, snowy weather earlier this year provided favorable overwintering conditions, creating insulation on the ground that prevented as many of the critters from dying off.
