Tick Talk - part two

Email

While tick-borne illnesses are part of living in and visiting the lakes area, there are ways to prevent or limit exposure.

Education is also key in learning where ticks are most prevalent and how to recognize symptoms of tick-borne illnesses. Ticks are most active in the spring and early summer and by now the tick season is at the tail end. They become active again in the fall. With mild winters, ticks may be active when the ground temperature reaches 50 degrees.
