Try to avoid tick bites. When working, camping, or walking in a tick habitat — wooded, brushy, or grassy places — a few simple precautions can reduce your chance of being bitten. Wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt; tuck your pant legs into socks or boots and shirt into pants to help keep ticks outside your clothing so they’re more easily spotted and removed. It also helps to wear light colored, tightly woven clothing, which will allow the dark tick to be seen more easily; the tight weave makes it harder for the tick to reach your skin and become attached.
Welcome to summer! Our weather is still on the inconsistent side with almost daily changes from sunny and warm to cloudy and cool (with the usual showers thrown in for good measure), but overall it’s definitely feeling more like the cold, wet weather is behind us and the time has come to think about getting outdoors to enjoy the beauty that surrounds us.
