Are Seed Ticks Putting Your Family in Danger?

Ticks love to hide in tall grass, piles of leaves and shrubs. Ticks climb up your body from their hiding place and embed themselves in your skin. Some reports are saying this is the worst tick season in history. But the biggest risk from seed ticks is the Powassan virus. This is a rare but potentially fatal virus which causes seizures, memory loss, and neurological damage.

Ticks can get on your pets and come into your house, infecting not just your cat and dog but you and your kids.  Make sure you protect your family, fur family, and everyone, by protecting your pets with Frontline Flea and Tick treatment. It is the easiest way to prevent flea and tick infestation and prevent your family from getting a deadly disease like Powassan virus.
