As we start spending more time in the great Maine outdoors we are hearing that ticks will be exceptionally plentiful this year. Ugh, great huh.

According to the Center for Disease Control, you don't have to go deep into the woods for one of these little vampires to muckle onto you. You can pick up an unwanted hitchhiker right in your own backyard. So next time you come back inside make sure you check those nether regions.

Now let's have some fun with a band from Lovell in Oxford County. They call themselves Flooded Cellar and when the warm weather finally arrives they enjoy fishing on Kezar Lake. They also stroll through the tall grass in wide open spaces and hike the wooded trails. Along with these nature loving excursions of course comes the threat of terrible tiny beasts...Friggin' Ticks!
