Residents Asked To Be Prepared For Tick Season

Thu, 07 Jun 2012 14:23:15 CDT
(Springfield)--Health officals are warning against the dangers of ticks as tick season is here. Ticks can carry lyme disease and other illnesses. Individuals are asked to consult a doctor if you experience a rash or illness accompanied by a fever after being bitten by a tick.

The best way to enjoy the outdoors and avoid ticks is to stay out of shin high grass and weeds. Walk in the center of trails so weeds don't brush up against you. Check often for ticks climbing on open skin. Also wear white or light colored long sleeved shirts and long pants where ticks are easy to see. Individuals are also asked to check their pets if they are outdoors.
