Lifestyle Changes when Dealing with Tick Bites

When dealing with tick bites, it is important to take preventive measures to reduce the risk of future bites. This includes wearing long sleeves and pants when in wooded or grassy areas, using insect repellent with 20-30% DEET on exposed skin and clothing, and performing thorough tick checks on yourself, your children, and your pets after spending time outdoors. It is also important to create a tick-safe zone in your yard by mowing the lawn, removing leaf litter, and keeping playground equipment, decks, and patios away from yard edges and trees. These lifestyle changes can help minimize the risk of tick bites and the transmission of tick-borne diseases.
