Ticks can be a nuisance and a health hazard. In the DFW area, tick season usually runs from April to September.
During this time, it's important to take steps to protect yourself from tick bites.
Here are some helpful tips from Paragon Pest Control:
- Wear protective clothing
When you're in areas where ticks are likely to be present, such as wooded areas or fields, wear long-sleeved shirts and pants. Tuck your pants into your socks to prevent ticks from crawling up your legs.
- Use insect repellent
Apply an EPA-registered insect repellent to your skin and clothing. Be sure to follow the instructions on the label.
- Perform regular tick checks
After spending time outdoors, thoroughly check your body for ticks. Pay special attention to areas such as your scalp, behind your ears, and in your armpits and groin.
