While we try to make the most of the precious few months of warm weather the Northland gets each year, the CDC is reminding the public to be vigilant and take precautions to avoid ticks and the nasty diseases they can carry.
I spent Fourth Of July Weekend at the lake, where I discovered a couple of deer ticks climbing on me. When I returned home, I mowed the lawn and there were a couple more I had to flick off. I hadn't had a problem with them yet this year, but now they seem to be finding me. If you find yourself in the same situation, you'll appreciate these deer tick bite prevention tips.
Wood Tick season is here and it's already a pretty bad one in some areas. Not only are they gross, but they can carry diseases. Be especially careful of the smaller deer ticks. Today I got a tip from a listener that you can use Apple Cider Vinegar to repel ticks.
