Q: Don’t ticks die after the first frost? Unfortunately, no! This is a common misconception.

The Blacklegged (deer) tick can remain active in their adult stage from fall to spring as long as the temperature is above freezing and the ground is not covered with snow. So stay alert and check for ticks after being outdoors.
