The season of the tick has returned

Published on

Lambton Public Health is reminding residents to protect themselves and their families against ticks this spring, a nuisance insect that can spread serious illnesses including Lyme disease.

Ticks live in wooded areas and fields and hitch a ride on humans and animals that pass by. They can often bite their host undetected.

Lambton Public Health advised people to stick to trails when outdoors, wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts, and apply insect repellent containing DEET.

They also advise owners to check their pets periodically for ticks and purchase them a flea and tick collar.

For more information visit or call 519-383-8331.
