This is one of those nasty creatures that look as if they pose little threat until.... well, they do! Even if it's as big as a bale of hay, it looks relatively easy to clobber a few times and move on. But these creatures have 2 nasty habits: a bunch of them will swarm all over their target delivering multiple bites, and they carry disease. Blight tick disease is not something that you want to catch... so if you see these coming, run!
