Premier Health and Holistic Medicine Publishing Guide to Preventing Tick Bites for Lyme Disease Prevention

RENO, NEVADA, USA, Feb. 8, 2022 / — Premier Health has released a new guide that offers ways to avoid tick bites for basic Lyme disease prevention. Although ticks can be spotted all year round, spring and summer are the most common times to encounter ticks.

Tick ​​bites can cause a rash that can become infected and cause Lyme disease. Many people develop signs and symptoms anywhere from three to 30 days after transmission.

Ticks like wooded or bushy areas with tall grass or dead leaves. If someone is hiking, they should be careful and stay in the middle of the trail to avoid contact with a tick.

Wearing protective clothing or equipment can help prevent tick bites. Treating the material with products containing 0.5% permethrin will help keep ticks away.

When returning inside the check:

• In and around the ears
• In and around the hair
• Inside the navel
• Around the waist
• Under the arms
• Back of the knees
• Between the legs

Another way to avoid ticks is to make sure they don’t fall on pets. It can be difficult to see tick bites on pets. Dogs are susceptible to ticks and can bring them inside homes, so check:

• In and around the ears
• Around the eyelids
• Under the collar
• Under the front legs
• Between the hind legs
• Around the tail

Another easy way to protect homes against ticks is to landscape the yard. Ticks are attracted to tall grass and brush, so it helps to clean or trim foliage around houses and lawn edges.

Mowing the lawn or raking leaves frequently can help prevent ticks in common areas of the yard. It is also helpful to store playground, office and patio equipment in sunny areas away from edges or trees.
