Ticks Becoming An Increasing Problem In Northern States As Populations Continue To Thrive
While many dog owners are preparing for the winter weather and taking seasonal precautions, many of the bugs that you safeguard your dog against during the fall are hanging around much longer. Ticks have become an increasing problem for northern states which have experienced a rash of warm weather that has allowed the pets to linger. According to the Nashua Telegraph, there are a number of factors that play into the rise in fleas, further illustrating the need to use flea and tick products to prevent the spread of these parasites and the diseases they may carry.
In northern states, many of the animals that carry ticks, such as deer, moose, rodents and other fauna, have lost many of their natural predators. With the rising populations of these animals, it has lead to an increase in carriers for these insects, which allows them to disperse over a wider area. Of course, the warm weather has also contributed to the rise in tick populations, as the lack of cold weather that would normally eliminate their ranks has been hard to come by throughout much of the autumn.
With this in mind, fall is no time to fall behind on your tick prevention methods, and using topical drops is a fabulous way to provide a full spectrum of protection. Hartz UltraGuard Pro Flea and Tick Drops are the ideal choice that is placed at the skin level between your canine's shoulder blades and down the length of his back to the tail.

These simple regimens can be valuable tools in preventing the spread of fleas and ticks and improving your companion's overall well-being.
