𖢥 Tick Facts 𖢥
As we start heading out and playing in the grass, hiking, and exploring we need to be careful of ticks. Here are a few tips to keep in mind!
- Check crevices such as the armpits, the back of the knees, and behind the ear. This applies to pets too!
- PULL the tick out and ensure there are no parts left behind. It is especially important that the head is removed. Clean the area with alcohol after.
- Wear long-sleeved shirts and full-length pants when hiking in high-risk areas.
- Use DEET products to repel insects.
