I have cabin available to me in Mercer, Wisconsin September and October. Ride SxS. Want to take gf and her dog (dogs allowed at cabin) but she is worried about ticks, fleas and bugs on dog. Best week to go?

"The only protection mode that the 1000 SDI has is if the ECU realizes the current driver is not capable of handling this high performance machine it will seize a cylinder or crank bearing hence protecting the driver from bodily harm."

Doubt there will be many problems with Ticks in October but it happens. Fleas and "bugs" in general aren't generally a problem other than mosquitos during the summer. Put some tick prevention on the dog the week before and you should be good to go. Keep in mind, ticks can still happen. Most dogs love the smells and sounds of the northwoods, ours sure does.

Ticks, mosquitoes, biting flies, and more are plentiful in northern Wisconsin but you can say that about many places throughout the mid-west. I have found ticks from early spring through late fall. Late September and early October are great for fall colors.

The "old style" Wood/dog/sheep ticks tend to die out after it gets real hot. Not the case with the deer ticks. They tend to stick around more from my experience.
get a flee and tick collar. The dog would prefer to come with.

Someone takes themselves a bit too seriously!
Always has to be someone that can't contribute intelligently

Tick collar for the dog and Deep Woods off for you and her. I carry a can of spray on my four wheeler. As cetaneaddict said above I have seen active ticks in December on deer. The body warmth keeps them active. I have had way too many friends and family that have had lymes disease to take chances. Another friend I deer hunt with had one of those other tick borne illnesses and had to take medicine for 6-8 weeks.
