The spring season is now in full force and before you know it the summer season will be here.  While families head to their summer homes, backyards, and cottages, tick exposure becomes a big threat throughout the Northeast. Ticks are known to live in tall grass and wooded areas and can pose a threat to homeowners, campers and outdoor adventurers alike. However, don’t be scared. Be prepared.

While there are many tick species, the Black legged is the one to fear because it is a carrier of Lyme disease. Though prevalent in wooded and tall grassy areas in the summer, ticks can survive cold temperatures and can pose a threat throughout the year, especially to hunters during deer season.

Ticks typically require 24 to 48 hours of feeding before successfully transmitting diseases to humans and animals alike. If you find a tick on your body and removed it within the first 24 hours of contact, infection is unlikely. These small bugs do not “jump” but instead attach themselves to humans or animals that brush by them in wooded or tall grassy areas.

Ticks are typically attracted to animals that are attracted wooded areas and tall grass such as rabbits, raccoons, skunks, and deer, but will happily cling to household pets and humans as well. To protect your campsite, backyard or other areas of activity, keep a 3-yard distance between dense foliage, tall grass, debris, and woodpiles.
