Public Health Solutions just issued an alert about ticks. Ticks are generally found near the ground, in brushy or wooded areas. They can’t jump or fly. Instead, they climb tall grasses or shrubs and wait for you to brush against them. When this happens, they climb on and seek a site for attachment. Ticks can cause a number of diseases and some can be life- threatening.

Protect yourself from TICKS

 Use a repellent with at least 20 percent DEET, picaridin or IR3535

 Dress in long-sleeved shirts, pants and socks when you’re outside.

 Shower as soon as possible after being outdoors.

Do frequent tick checks after being outdoors and remove attached ticks promptly by grasping with tweezers as close to the skin as possible and pulling straight out. Then watch for signs of illness such as fever/chills, aches and pains and/or a rash. If you have these symptoms, see your doctor immediately.

Call Public Health Solutions at 402 826 3880 with any questions or concerns.
