Where's the possum?  I hear they eat a lot of ticks - handy this time of year.

I think we must have plenty of 'possums, because we have virtually zero ticks here.

Loads of chiggers, though!

I considered bringing your Blue Scaled Quail with me to Florida for that purpose.

Plenty of quail here, but didn’t know they eat ticks. Good to know!  Tho I wish they would eat more!
