It's the Tick Season

Ticks are small spider-like animals, which are almost invisible to the bare eye. Because of this the ticks become even more dangerous: most of the time you discover a tick after he has bitten the skin and has sucked himself with blood. That is why it is important to check yourself after you have been in grass, bushes, or heath. This includes pets.
