NEWS
====================================

Be alert for ticks!
We have an enormous deer population roaming through the east side.
They bring with them ticks.
Several have been found in grassy areas of JD schools...especially areas closest to woods.
They can even be in your backyard!

What does one look like?
Tiny! They are a member of the arachnid (spider) family.
Here is a picture of one on a thumb:

Prevention
Topical treatments with permethrin are the best (DEET is better for repelling mosquitoes).
Natural topical treatments that may work are EcoSmart (avail at BJs & drugstores).
At the end of the day, change clothes/bathe! (this is the simplest thing to do)
I found a tick...now what?
Don't panic!
Ticks don't bite right away like mosquitoes.
A tick bite doesn't mean you'll get Lyme disease.
Get a "Tick Key" (LL Bean store) -- they work VERY well to remove ticks from pets/people.
DON'T use heat or pinch/break off the tick.
For ticks that have been attached to you 24+ hrs OR a bulls-eye rash develops, see your doctor.
