The time for greatest concern is late spring and early summer when ticks are in their nymph stage. So if you’re out enjoying nature, it’s important to take steps to protect yourself.
- Avoid walking through high grass and bushy areas. If you’re hiking, stay on trails.
- Use insect repellent labeled for ticks (not appropriate for infants; follow instructions for use on children).
- Wear light-colored clothing, and – to minimize skin exposure – long pants (with pants tucked into your socks) and long-sleeved shirts.
- After outdoor activity, check yourself for ticks, paying close attention to the back of the knees, behind the ears, scalp, arm pits, and back. Check children and pets, too.
