PROTECT YOURSELF FROM TICKS

Posted: 03.28.2018
Spring means more time outdoors. Here are some simple steps to protect yourself against ticks. Avoid woods or grasslands that may be tick infested. If you do go into the woods, try to keep in the center of a cleared trail. Wear long pants, long sleeves, and boots or closed-toe shoes. Dress in light colors so ticks are easier to spot. Tuck pants into socks to keep ticks from crawling up pant legs. Spray repellent on your clothing and apply compounds with DEET, per directions, onto exposed skin. After being outdoors, wash your clothes and thoroughly inspect your body, especially areas with hair.
