May is also Lymes Disease Awareness Month. Whether you (or your pet) are out enjoying our great trail system or just out working in the yard, the threat of tick-borne illnesses is real. Wood ticks are alive and well in the spring. If you cannot avoid being near long grass, be sure to check yourself over thoroughly. Here are some quick tips to keeping the ticks at bay: wear long-sleeve/pant protective and light colored clothing (tuck pants into socks or boots), use a good tick repellent (DEET-based or Permethrin), and remove ticks as soon as you find them.
