It is necessary to choose the right clothes, do not walk on tall grass, and in case of a bite, consult a doctor immediately.
With the first warming, ticks wake up in natural areas. The bites of these insects can seriously harm your health. In order for spring trips outside the city to bring only positive emotions, it is worth remembering simple precautionary rules.
First of all, you need to dress properly. Experts advise to choose closed clothing made of thick fabric. It is more difficult to notice a tick on dark or variegated clothes – it is better to dress in light, monochromatic clothes. Shoes should be high and the legs should be tucked into long socks. You can use a special insect repellent on your clothes.
Ticks live in tall grass, so it’s safer to walk along the trails while walking. It is recommended that you check yourself, children and pets every two hours. Back home, you must carefully check all things.
If you still could not avoid a tick bite, you need to see a doctor.
To minimize the danger of bites in the city, the employees of the municipal economy complex carry out preventive work. Workers mow the grass near playgrounds and sports grounds, along paths and paths, and remove dead wood. Safety rules are published on information posters.
