Please Don't Feed the Ticks!

Few things in the great outdoors make folks squirm as much as ticks, and for good reason. Besides being disgusting little critters, the insects can burrow into the skin and suck the blood of the host, whether it be a hiker (you), deer, dog or other animal. Ticks are not only pesky but also can carry dangerous diseases that could infect the host.

Tick prevention is important to keep in mind while hiking or doing other outdoor activities.
