Lyme Disease and Tick Safety this Summer – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889
Summer’s a time for camping, hiking and exploring the great outdoors, but along with the natural beauty of the environment come vectors, such as ticks, which carry disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports an increase in tickborne diseases and recommends taking precautions to avoid ticks.
“The best thing is to prevent that little tick from getting on you in the first place,” said Denise Stagg, PhD, MSN, RN, CNE, assistant professor in the College of Nursing and Allied health at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
Glen Needham, a retired entomologist and tick expert formerly with Ohio State University Extension, predicts a bad tick season for 2018.
