There are some simple precautions you can take to reduce your chances of getting bitten by a Tick. Keep to paths and tracks. If passing through areas of rough vegetation it’s a good idea to tuck trousers into socks. Check your clothing and exposed skin for ticks at regular intervals and again at the end of the day.
