Tick Bite Prevention: 4 Ways to Be Proactive In Fending Off Ticks! by Kimberly Johnson
Ticks don’t jump or rain down from the treetops – though my 9-year-old will argue otherwise! Here are four ways to fend off ticks:
- Play in the sun! Ticks thrive in dark, humid environments. If you have lingering leaf piles, clear them out to reduce the risk of exposure.
- Wear light-colored clothing to make it easier to spot even the smallest tick. And keep your ankles covered – they travel from the ground up.
- Keep tweezers or a tick-removal tool easily accessible in your car or on your keychain.
- Shower, or at least do a quick inspection, before bed each night. Don’t forget to check between toes, behind the knees and especially near your hairline.
