The Weather Channel recently announced that most of the U.S. will be a “a tick time-bomb” in 2021, and displayed a map showing that in California, the threat ticks pose this year is slightly above average. And despite the drought — which would normally be a deterrent for ticks — scientists are noticing more of those bloodsuckers on the coast than ever.

To better understand how weather patterns this year might affect tick season in California, SFGATE spoke with Colorado State University tick researcher Daniel Salkeld, who sits on the board of the Bay Area Lyme Foundation and authored a recent and terrifying study concerning suitable tick habitats in California.

It’s spelled Tik Tok, OP.
