F) Warm Weather and Tick Precautions

The warm weather brings an increase in the activity level of adult ticks across Halton Region. Information from the Halton Region website  provides recommendations for anyone taking part in outdoor activities in wooded areas or fields with long grassy areas, in order to minimize and detect exposure to ticks.


·  light-coloured clothing, so it’s easier to see ticks

·  closed-toed shoes

·  long-sleeved shirts

·  long pants, tucked into your socks

After being outdoors, check for ticks on yourself and your children. Look:

·  behind your knees

·  on your head

·  in your belly button

·  in your groin area

·  in your underarm area

·  on the back of your body – use a mirror, or ask someone to check for you

Should you find a tick on you or your child, please follow these steps to remove and submit the tick to Halton Region for testing.

For further information about ticks in the area, and how you can limit exposure to ticks near your home, please visit the Halton Region website
