The recent warm weather could be a sign of a bad tick season in the spring.
The weather we are having is much warmer than it should be and because of that ticks could start coming out.
People are hiking and doing things outdoors. They were taking advantage of the warmer weather, but whether they go out now or in the spring or summer, they can't let ticks get in the way.
Experts say mild weather in the winter could lead to a bad tick season in the spring. This means a prolonged season and therefore more time for ticks to be born.
You’re not going to see a lot of Lyme disease now but because things are kind of prematurely warming up you might see it now. The chances are it’s still going to be at its peak in the spring, in the summer and the fall.
You can only get Lyme from a deer tick that has the disease. Most tick bites are not going to give you Lyme disease even if the tick has it. That’s because it takes about two days for the tick to actually give you the disease.
If you’re going to be outdoors wear tight fitting clothes and to try to avoid going out at the end of the day.
Symptoms of Lyme disease could be having a rash that looks like a target, headaches, being tired and aching joints.
