You have 36 hours to act after a tick bite. Do you know what to do? Learn proper tick removal technique and lyme disease prevention.

Lyme Disease Prevention Tips


  • Cover skin in grassy/wooded areas.
  • Use insect repellent: 10-30% DEET or a natural alternative, oil of lemon-eucalyptus.
  • Wear light-colored clothing. It will be easier to spot ticks this way.
  • Check your pets. They can bring ticks into your home.
  • Shower! Ticks don’t bite immediately; they walk around the body looking for a “perfect” spot. Showering can preempt the bite.
