What You Need to Know About Ticks at Natural Parents Network
I have a post today at Natural Parents Network on “What You Need to Know About Ticks.”
It’s summertime. That means it is the perfect time for picnics, hiking, and other outdoor activities. Along with the fun of getting out in nature, there are some concerns, such as ticks, to be cognizant of. Ticks don’t target humans, but if we happen to be out and about, ticks view us as another warm meal.
Besides being a little freaky to have crawling or hanging onto you, ticks can carry disease. Infected ticks have the ability to spread diseases such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever or Lyme disease, among others. That doesn’t mean you have to stay holed up in your home during these summer months. You just need to be aware and take some precautions.
