It’s Tick Time!

We are welcoming this warm weather and so are the ticks! Time to tuck your pants in your socks or wear rubber boots when you are raking, gardening, and walking out in fields and woods. Wear long sleeves with tight cuffs, too, if you are working with your hands. Tie up long hair and bathe after your exposure to wash off loose ticks and find any that may be embedded. Keep your tick repellent by the door and use it, or treat your clothing with permethrin (NOT your body). Learn how to remove a tick, and the symptoms of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. Check yourself, your kids, and your pets, too! Every crack and cranny. For more details, check out www.lymediseaseassociation.org and join us May 1 on the State House lawn for Lyme Disease Awareness Day.Like us on Facebook at “Bit By A Tick?”
