Safe Tick Repellent April 27 2016

Ticks are on the move, being found in locations they never were before. So how do you keep them off of you?  Here are a few tips.

1. Avoid long grass

2. Mow your lawn frequently

3. Clear up any junk in your yard where ticks may hide

4. Place a 3-ft wide barrier of wood chips or gravel between lawns and wooded areas to restrict tick migration

5. Use a SAFE repellent
