Preventing Tick-borne Diseases
According to the CDC, it is especially important to take preventative measures against ticks during the warmer months, like spring and summer, when ticks are most active. If possible, avoid wooded, bushy areas with long grass and leaf litter. In addition, the CDC recommends using repellents containing 20-30% DEET, products containing 0.5% permethrin on clothing or other repellents registered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Always follow product instructions to ensure safe usage and best results.
