Tis the season for ticks!

How to Prevent Ticks (from KidsHealth.org): “Enjoy the great outdoors, but don’t forget about the threat of ticks. Ticks can carry several diseases, including Lyme disease.

Wearing light-colored clothing can help you see ticks more easily. Wear closed shoes or boots, long-sleeve shirts and pants, and tuck pant legs into socks or shoes for extra protection. Pull long hair back or wear a hat. When hiking, stay on trails and avoid bushy areas with tall grass and leaf litter.

Use an insect repellent with 20% to 30% DEET. Always follow the directions for use carefully.”
