Tick Check

After outdoor activities in areas where there may be ticks, check yourself, your children, your pets, and your gear carefully for ticks.

Remember to check areas that cannot be easily seen, such as inside and around ears, on the scalp, and under arms.

Showering soon after being outdoors can help rinse away unattached ticks, and will allow you to check all areas of your body.

Don't forget to check your pet!
