May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month

Stay Safe While Enjoying the Great Outdoors

If you do encounter an attached tick, remove it promptly

either with a tick remover or tweezers

Remember, DO NOT use home remedies such as alcohol, petroleum

jelly, dish liquid, lit match, etc.

These remedies irritate the tick, so the tick will end up

spitting the bacteria into your system before backing out

which defeats the purpose of removing the tick

If you want to test a tick after removal, visit our website: or to

purchase one of our on-site tick tests

Let's all spread the word about ticks and Lyme

so we can help detect Lyme earlier!
