Be Tick Smart

As we get out and about in this delightful spring weather, please remember to protect yourself and your family from ticks.  According to the Vermont Department of Health website, “The best way to prevent tick-borne diseases is to prevent tick bites. In Vermont, tick-borne illnesses are most often transmitted between early spring and late fall since ticks are most active during warm months. Take action to decrease your risk of infection. Wear a repellent containing up to 30% DEET, check your body daily for ticks, and limit your exposure to ticks and tick habitats.”  You can learn more by accessing their website here.
