Tick Prevention and Protection for people
When tick season is in full flow, don't go sitting in the heather or overgrowth to have your picnic - be sensible. And when you are out and about, wear long trousers tucked in or with gaitors. Keep tops tucked into your trousers too.
Check yourself over especially after you've stopped for a rest or a bite to eat.
Unfortunately ticks get into our gardens too. Think about how you use your garden, and where ticks may come from. Is your garden deer free? Birds and rabbits can bring ticks in too. Think about where they may travel, and especially with bird tables etc, keep these in a separate area from where you may relax in your garden. Keeping the grass short, and having pathways in between the bushes and plants in borders may help too.
