Protect Yourself Against Ticks This Season

  1. Protect your feet reported:

Most people who contract Lyme get it from nymphal ticks, the immature ones. Because nymphs are as small as poppy seeds and their bite is painless, many people don’t notice or remove them.”

The small ticks usually attach from low lying areas and then crawl up to find a warm space to chow down.

By protecting your feet you can brush off many of the infectious nymphal ticks. Doing this is a simple fix.

When going into wooded or high grass areas, wear tall form-fitting socks, and closed toe shoes that preferably go up past the ankle.

You can even add an additional layer of protection by spraying your shoes with some tick repellent.
