tick pullBe aware of ticks in this highly anticipated “explosion” season.  Check yourself daily; the armpits, hairline, behind ears, behind knees, between toes & groin area are places to check. If you find one, use tweezers to grip it as close to your skin as possible, pull straight back with steady pressure.  Circle the date on the calendar, save the tick. Contact your doctor for advice. Talk to your doctor if you develop a rash where you were bitten, or have symptoms such as fever, headache, fatigue, or sore/aching muscles. Wear light colored clothing in the woods, long pants tucked into socks, and long sleeves. Use Bug repellent with DEET. For more info check the MA website here.
