Ticks and Lyme Disease

Ticks are tiny insects that bite and attach themselves to their host to feed (ie you!). They can spread Lyme disease and encephalitis so remember to cover up.

Top Tips for Tackling Ticks

* Cover up with tick proof clothing such as Rovince Anti-Tick Clothing
* Apply tick repellent to any exposed skin that isn’t covered up
* Always carry a tick remover so that you can deal with any ticks that do manage to attach themselves to you as quickly as possible
