It’s Lyme Time! Be Tick Aware!

1 – Walk in the middle of trails; avoid sitting on logs and leaning on trees.

2 – Wear a hat, tuck in hair, if possible.

3 – Wear a long-sleeved shirt fitted at the wrist.

4 – Wear shoes, no bare feet or sandals.

5 – Wear long pants tucked into high socks or duct tape around pants.

6 – Consider Deet for skin and permethrin for clothes.

7 – Wear white or light-colored clothing to make it easier to see ticks.

8 – Do tick checks immediately and 3 days after outdoor activity.

9 – If you find a tick, ask an adult to remove it carefully and save it.
