Steps to Prevent Tick Bites

  1. Wear light-colored clothing so you can see ticks more easily.
  2. Tuck your pant legs into your socks and your shirt into your pants when walking in woods, brush, or tall grass. Deer ticks attach to clothing and then walk upward.
  3. Use a tick repellent that contains 20%-40% DEET or Picaradin on skin and clothing. These products include Off®, Cutter®, Repel®, Ultrathon® and Natrapel®. The American Academy of Pediatrics states that DEET is safe for children, but recommends that lower concentrations (10%) be used, and applied  by an adult. Be aware that DEET will dissolve plastics and varnish.
  4. OR pre-treat your clothing with a product that contains permethrin, such as Permanone® or Duranon®, which both repel and kill ticks and remain effective through several wash cycles. They should be sprayed on clothing only (not skin). Outdoor clothing stores sell pre-treated tick-repellent clothing which  remains effective through 70 wash cycles (the life of the garment).
  5. Do the Tick Check whenever you’ve been outdoors! Inspect yourself and your pets after being outdoors. Ticks often attach in body folds, behind knees, ears, in the pelvic region and on scalps. Showering removes unattached ticks, but not attached ticks.
  6. Tumble clothes in a dryer on high heat for 10 minutes to kill ticks.
  7. Use caution in wooded and bushy areas with leaf litter. Walk in the center of trails.

Keep an eye on the weather.   If it looks like a storm use your best judgment to decide if you wish to risk getting caught in the rain.  Rain in Windsor does not necessarily mean it is raining in the county.
