Ticks in The City of Frederick

I was out working in the area just below Hood College in Frederick, MD.  We met a woman who lives on West College Terrace between Hood College and Baker Park.  She told us that just the day before she had a tick on her.  She pointed out that she does not exactly live in the country and had not been out of her yard.  Many people think that ticks are just in the country, but the reality is that ticks go where blood meals take them.  If a field mouse, squirrel or other small animal can get into your yard or house it can take a tick with it.  Not only is it unpleasant to find a blood sucking insect on you, but in this case they are causing a rapid spread of Lyme disease in the Frederick county area.
