I want to take my kids hiking in a heavily wooded area this weekend. Earlier this summer we went,and the ticks were terrible. how cold does it have to be to kill off the ticks? we have had a few mornings when the temp was in the high 30's and there was frost on the windshields. is that cold enough? thanks,Ben
I would give it a shot. They should all be toast as long as its been below freezing for a week or so, long enough to freeze the ground. They are most likely dying off, and I wouldn't worry about the ticks now. Just make sure that you check your kids for ticks, and have a good time!
