Ticks are out in Mass.

Take steps to keep yourself and your family safe from ticks and the illnesses they can cause.

Use EPA-approved tick repellents on your skin and clothes.

Read and follow the directions.

Wear light-colored clothing to make it easier to spot a crawling tick.

Check for ticks on yourself, your kids and your pets any time you've been outdoors.

Some tick bites can make you sick, but finding and removing a tick promptly makes it less likely.

Call your doctor if you start to feel ill or notice a rash near the bite.

Play it safe when you're outdoors.
