Ever wondered how ticks latch on so tightly?

We love spring, but there’s one thing we don’t love about it and that’s the start of tick season. Yes, it’s already upon us, as many parts of the country are already finding these parasites.

But, have you ever wondered why a dug-in tick is so hard to remove? Well, this video lays it all out for us. It’s both disgusting and incredibly interesting at the same time.

As if we didn’t have enough reasons to hate ticks already! This video is one those things that’s so gross you just can’t look away. Would you have guessed ticks only feed three times in their whole lives.

At least we now know why they’re so hard to remove, and their mouths make them all the more disgusting.

Shed hunting, morel hunting and turkey hunting are all awesome ways to spend time in the outdoors in this spring, but make sure you research ahead of time and find the best ways to avoid these creatures before they latch on.
