Tick Talk - part two
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.

With mild winters, ticks may be active when the ground temperature reaches 50 degrees.
