Protect Yourself Against Ticks This Season

  1. Avoid probable tick areas

Although ticks can be scary, that does not mean you have to avoid the great outdoors altogether.

Ticks enjoy some hiding and nesting spots more than others, if you know where these are you can take extra precaution to stay away from these areas. tells us the woodsy spaces that tick flock to:

They tend to be near the ground—in decomposed leaves, grasses, bushes, fallen logs and on the lower part of tree trunks. When you brush by them, they may transfer to your shoe, your pant leg or your arm. Sometimes ticks hitch a ride on your dog’s fur. And then come on over to you when they get the chance.”
