It pays to stay safe from tick bites. Because there is no vaccine, you need to be proactive about staying safe from ticks. However, if you do find a tick in your skin, be sure it gets sent to a lab for analysis. Some of the best ways to stay safe from tick bites are to wear light-colored long sleeves and pants, so you can easily spot a tick on your clothes. The contrasting colors and the smallness of the tick make them easy to see when there are contrasting colors between the pest and your clothing. Be sure to tuck your pants into your socks so that you close off any area for the tick to crawl. As well, use a natural, effective, and safe tick control such as Tick Killz.

Unlike the myth that surrounds them, ticks don’t jump down from trees, but it is safer to stay in the sun if you’re in an area with a prevalence of ticks. These pests thrive in dark, humid environments like leaf piles. Every night be sure to check your skin for ticks and remember to check between your toes, behind your knees, and along your hairline.
