Why are ticks so bad this year?

I walked through my own yard for about 2 min and got 2 on me. I walked back by the woods later that day (I have a camp back there, I knew I’d get ticks because it was in the woods and I checked myself as soon as I got there and back lol) ended up with 4 that whole trip. Like you can’t enjoy being outside at all anymore. Is there a reason they have gotten so bad? And how do you stop them from getting on you so much? I had plans this summer to go camping and bonfires and stuff but I’m seriously grossed out by the ticks and might not even bother doing anything outside.

    Global warming is expanding their range of access.

    Probably just a heavy population of them right in your area this season, try another camping spot, there may not be a one.

    Odd, I have yet to see any bug life this season, but we did seem to have a late spring, lower temperatures, t-storms, even our first tornado warning yesterday, what you might expect late April/early May.
