Going outside is a great way to enjoy life and improve your health and wellness. Even though the Great Outdoors has so much to offer, there are some things to keep in mind when enjoying it. Items like sunburn, poison ivy and others cause people to prepare accordingly with sunscreen or long attire. Similar preparation needs to occur for ticks as they carry a number of diseases that can have extremely adverse effects on us. In the United States alone, there are nearly a half MILLION cases of tick-borne illnesses each year, with a quarter of those cases being our children. This doesn't mean the solution is to live in a bubble, but there is a lot we can do to help ourselves!
This email will help educate you on local tick information, how to prevent and what to do if you encounter ticks.
