How To Prevent Tick Bites This Spring

Posted on April 1st, 2020 by Knockout Pest

Once the weather warms up, more people will be spending time in the great outdoors. Being outside during the spring can put you at risk for getting a tick bite. Below are some precautions you can take to avoid getting a tick bite this season.

Protect Yourself

Before you go outside, you can protect yourself against tick bites by wearing the right gear. It is a good idea to wear long sleeves and pants to shield your skin from ticks. In addition, spray yourself with tick repellent as another layer of protection. 

Stay Away From Wooded Areas

There are plenty of people who are avid hikers. If you plan on going on a hike in the near future, stay away from wooded areas and tall grassy areas. After all, ticks have been known to hide in these places. 

Check For Ticks Before Going Back Inside

You can have a tick on you without even realizing it. This is due to the fact that ticks are tiny and tick bites can be painless. That being said, be sure to inspect yourself for ticks before going back inside.
