Are you tired of constantly applying bug spray and checking your children and pets for ticks after spending time outside? Ticks are carriers for serious diseases like Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme Disease. The complications from these illnesses can last for years. Ticks may be more common if you live in a wooded area, but they can be in your backyard even if you live in the middle of the city.
Preventing Tick Bites
You can prevent tick bites by using a bug spray that contains DEET and dressing appropriately. This means long pants and long sleeves. It also means that you should regularly check for ticks. If you find a tick be sure to remove it using tweezers and by pulling on it gently so that it complete detaches. If this does not seem like a practical solution for running around your backyard in the summer, you should consider treating for ticks.
