THIS IS A NIGHTMARE.
I repeat. A Nightmare. While some people hate spiders…I hate ticks.
The City of Cornwall and Eastern Ontario Health Unit are warning those about the risks of ticks and lyme disease. So if you’re out enjoying a walk through Guindon Park, or along the bike path, or Parkway, make sure you check yourself and your pets afterwards for these horrible, gross little critters.
But the EOHU is here to help!
How To Avoid Ticks
– Wear light-coloured clothing. It makes ticks easier to spot.
– Wear a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, socks and closed footwear (avoid sandals or open shoes).
– Tuck your shirt into your pants, and tuck your pants into your sock
If you get a tick (I’m so sorry if you have to deal with that) here’s how to properly remove them!
