Ready for a Terrible Tick Season?


Predictions are in that this is going to be the worst tick season ever. These little suckers thrive in warm weather, and although it has been fairly cold, a few warm days this season helped them mature. Lyme disease is a reason for caution, but ticks cause other debilitating diseases as well. Here are some ways to protect yourself:

• Wear long clothing when hiking – look for lightweight hiking clothing.

• Use good bug spray and tick repellent – be sure to shower after your activity to remove any chemicals.

• Physically check for ticks – have someone look over the spots you can’t see.
