By Joanne Schnurr, CTV News Ottawa, March 30, 2018 If you're heading out for a hike this long weekend, you may want to spray yourself with a dose of DEET. No, not for mosquitoes but ticks. Those nasty bugsare proving resilient evenin our cold Canadian winters.  Several folks in our region have reported coming home from a winter walk in the woods and finding a tick attached to their dog or themselves.
It appears tick season now is pretty much every season.
