Welcome summer! Not welcome – ticks!

School’s out and the season we’ve all been waiting for is here – tick season! I wanted to remind everyone that the best way to prevent Lyme disease is by covering up with clothes/spray and checking for ticks as soon as you can after coming in from outdoors. An imbedded tick that has only been present a short time can just be removed. If you think it’s been attached over 36 hours, call your doctor for a preventive dose of antibiotic like doxycycline.
