Hi Chris,

I have been walking with kids on the Cronin property for 10 years now and I have never seen so few deer ticks in all that time.  Honestly, I can
count on one hand the number of ticks students and I have found on our
clothing since the intramural began in October.  The ticks were extremely bad last year but nearly none this year.

Through my anecdotal eyes, the selective hunts are working.  Please share my observations with whomever will listen.  Thanks.
