Ticks and tick-borne illness: what you need to know, and how to avoid them
Watch out for ticks!
As the hotter weather approaches, people spend more time outdoors, and so do many insects and pests. Among them are ticks, which are small, bloodsucking parasites.

These diseases can be dangerous and even life-threatening when left untreated.
