Tick Tips

tick 95x120

Ticks can be an itchy annoyance, and they can possibly transmit diseases. However, that’s not a good enough reason to stay inside! There are several steps you can take to avoid tick bites: wear insect repellent (with DEET), treat clothing with Permethrin, stay in the middle of trails and avoid low hanging branches, tuck your pants into your socks, and most importantly when you get home do a tick check. If you do find a tick has bitten you, remove it with tweezers and monitor the area for a rash for the next 30 days. Signs of a rash or flu-like symptoms should be promptly reported to your doctor.
