Colorado wildlife are not visitors you want on your property this summer. Unfortunately, for many folks in Loveland and Fort Collins, wildlife, including raccoons, skunks and squirrels are all likely to become problems for people at some point in the next couple of months.
With the resurgence of ticks every spring, there is much ado about the threat of Lyme disease. However, while there is an abundance of ticks in Colorado, no human case of Lyme disease has originated in this State.

More than likely, the spiders you are seeing in your home or business have been there all winter. Many spiders begin seeking solace in the fall, looking for a place to find comfort from the harsh temperatures of winter.
