Summer Safety: Protecting your kids from ticks
When you are planning to spend time outdoors you often remember to bring water to stay hydrated and sunscreen to protect your skin, but are you thinking about ticks?
Montana’s abundance of wooded, grassy areas and lush shrubbery provide ideal habitats for ticks. Montana’s ticks are capable of transmitting several tick-borne illnesses, with Rocky Mountain spotted fever being the most common. Ticks do not fall from trees onto people or animals. Rather, they travel from the ground up and tend to latch on if you brush up against low-lying bushes, trees and grass.
