Lyme Disease Prevention Tips
Cover skin in grassy/wooded areas.
Use insect repellent: 10-30% DEET or a natural alternative, oil of lemon-eucalyptus.
Wear light-colored clothing. It will be easier to spot ticks this way.
Check your pets. They can bring ticks into your home.
Shower! Ticks don’t bite immediately; they walk around the body looking for a “perfect” spot. Showering can preempt the bite. .
