In the Great Outdoors
When you're out on the trail, whether hiking, camping, or hunting, protect yourself from mosquitoes and other bugs by using insect/tick repellent.
Wear permethrin-treated clothing when practical.
Check your clothes and body for ticks daily.
If you find any ticks, carefully remove them with tweezers.
The ticks that transmit Lyme disease are most active in May, June, July, and August, but check for ticks in all warm months to protect yourself against other tick-borne diseases.
