Ticks in SVG

My dogs get three or more ticks each week. They are on meds so the ticks die after the bite them and are easy to remove. I'm not sure if they are getting them from the beach or from our walks into town. All the same I don't like it and I check myself each day for ticks, none found on me, so it appears these ticks only like dogs.
Blowing 20+ Kts today for most of the day. It is going to be that way until Wednesday.
