Taking a hike through the woods? Avoid ticks (and Lyme Disease!) by wearing long sleeve shirts, pants tucked into your socks, shoes (no sandals!), and apply bug spray before your start. Light colored clothing can help you spot a tick before they attach. DEET can be applied safely to clothing and exposed skin, even on children! Just be sure to follow the label requirements.
