This time of year is the perfect time to get outside and explore the great outdoors.
Hiking, camping, canoeing, fishing…the outdoor possibilities are endless, especially in our region.
But spending time in nature is not without its risks. One common issue in our region, and across the U.S., is ticks.
If you spend any amount of time outside this summer, you will probably find a tick on your clothes or skin at some point. But don’t panic.
