Tick Prevention In Fall
Posted on September 19 2018
While spring and summer are the top months for tick activity, they remain a concern in the fall as hikers and campers spend their days outside. The cool weather encourages outdoor enthusiasts to explore the great outdoors; but it also allows deer ticks to find a healthy supply of blood to feed on throughout the season.
To avoid being bit by a tick, the CDC recommends that individuals wear long-sleeve clothing, bright in color to easily see a tick on the skin. Using tick repellent and insect spray, especially around the ankles, will help keep away ticks.
Tick Disease is a year-round concern that stems from deer and other wild animals. Refresh yourself on tick information to learn how to remove ticks and the signs of Lyme Disease.
