Ready for hiking season? So are ticks


If you’re like most Coloradans, you probably can’t wait to get back out on the hiking trail this spring. But hiking and spring also attract something else – ticks. This may not sound threatening, but tick-borne illnesses can become chronic if not treated early.

To lessen your chances of getting bitten, be sure to take some necessary precautions while hiking.

• Wear long-sleeved shirts and pants, if you can.
• Apply insect repellent.
• Conduct regular tick checks.
• When you get home, put all exposed clothing in a dryer on high heat.
• Shower as soon as you can after spending time outdoors.
