As the weather warms up, tick season in New York becomes a concern for many. These tiny pests can carry dangerous diseases, making it important to take precautions to protect yourself and your loved ones.
Here are some tips for staying safe during tick season in New York:
1. Wear protective clothing: When spending time outdoors, wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, and closed-toe shoes. Tuck your pants into your socks to prevent ticks from crawling up your legs.
2. Use insect repellent: Apply insect repellent containing DEET to your skin and clothing. This will help keep ticks and other insects away.
3. Check for ticks: After spending time outdoors, check yourself and your pets for ticks. Pay close attention to areas such as the scalp, behind the ears, and under the arms.
4. Remove ticks properly: If you find a tick, use tweezers to grasp it as close to the skin as possible and pull it straight out. Do not twist or jerk the tick, as this can cause the mouthparts to break off and remain in the skin.
By following these tips, you can help protect yourself and your loved ones from the dangers of tick-borne illnesses. Stay safe this tick season in New York!
