IT IS TICK SEASON - always be on the lookout!

Spring is here and with the warmer weather some great things, like spring flowers, will be happening outside. But along with the pretty flowers come some not so welcome things, like ticks. Over the last few decades ticks have spread across more of the United States and with them come the diseases they carry. Visit the CDC website for information on how to protect yourself, your family and your pets and the measures to take if you find a tick. CDC Information concerning Ticks   -   Keep Kids Safe from Ticks
