Lyme Disease and Ticks… What Do You Need To Know

Now that day time temperatures are above 4°C, ticks have once again become active. Please remember to be tick smart. Dressing in light coloured clothing makes adult ticks and nymphs (small stage of the tick), easier to see when they are on you. Always remember to do a tick check when you return inside. Thoroughly check your body for ticks and nymphs and promptly remove and dispose of them. Have someone check you from behind if possible or take a quick shower to help remove any unattached ticks. Putting your clothes in a hot dryer for several minutes has been found to kill ticks.
