Reduce your risk of tick bites and disease exposure by:

  • applying an appropriate tick repellent on exposed skin and clothing, following label directions;
  • wearing long pants and long-sleeved shirts;
  • tucking in clothing to create a barrier;
  • staying to the centre of walking trails;
  • inspecting yourself, children and pets after spending time outdoors;
  • removing ticks as soon as possible from people and pets, using tweezers; and
  • keeping grass and shrubs around homes cut short to create drier environments that are less suitable for tick survival.
