Here are some helpful tick-prevention strategies to keep you, your family and pet protected this summer:

1.) YOUR YARD: Ticks are not usually in the middle of your lawn, they live on the outskirts where yards border wooded areas. They also like shady areas with leaves. Place a layer of wood chips between your grass yard and the woods edge. Ticks are attracted to the wood chips because of the shade and moisture it provides. This will prevent some of them from crawling inward where you and your family spend most of your time.

2.) TICK CHECKS: Do periodic tick checks (on yourself, children and pets) and carefully remove any found. (Wear light colored clothing so ticks are easier to find.) Throw untreated clothing into the dryer when you first come inside. Ticks can only last a few minutes in the dryer!

3.) OUTDOOR PURSUITS: When on a hike, bike, or walk try to remain in the center of a trail in order to minimize your exposure. Remember - ticks cannot fly, they crawl up. Avoid sitting directly on the ground, woodpiles or fallen logs - areas where ticks love to live.

4.) PERSONAL PROTECTION: Wear tick repellent clothing. Insect Shield repellent apparel is EPA registered to repel ticks (as well as a variety of other pesky and potentially dangerous insects.) The repellency is odorless, invisible and long-lasting. Insect Shield apparel is available for adults, kids and even your dog!
