After a wild winter, and a beautiful spring, summer is just around the corner.
It’s my favorite season, and from picnics in the park and backyard BBQs to hiking and camping trips, I try to spend as much time outside as possible. But there’s one thing I dread about being outdoors during the hot season: ticks.
I can handle mosquito bites. While they are annoying, the ones where I live aren’t dangerous. But ticks? I pray (and do thorough inspections) to make sure that my family doesn’t get lyme disease.
Ticks are so small that they can be impossible to spot before they’re lodged into your skin.
