Nasty Little Creatures (Tick Awareness and Prevention)
Updated: May 29
With May being Lyme Disease Awareness month I wanted to take the spotlight and shine it right down on the disease-carrying ticks we all come skin to skin with.
The truth is that you don't have to be on a backcountry trek to find these creatures, chances are they are living in your backyard. From gardening at home to packing out of the mountains, or camping with friends, ticks are waiting to get a piece of you.
Listen to this episode as I talk about where ticks are living, how they may come into contact with you, ways to PREVENT bites, and what to do if you find one on you.
