May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month. Here are some tips on how you can be checking for ticks.
• Check yourself and your family for ticks after being outside
• Having a bath or shower within two hours of coming inside makes it easier to spot ticks and wash off unattached ticks
• Ticks like warm places on the body. Remember to check:
• around ears
• behind knees
• in the hair
• between the legs/groin area
• around the waist
