There are 2 comments on Tick Season Tips

  1. The article mentions light-colored clothing but then misses an opportunity to instruct how to take best advantage of that: when walking in any New England forested area, do periodic tick checks. Especially do a close scan of socks, pants, the works, at the end of a hike.

  2. What they should do is go back to spraying like they did many years ago. I fon’t remember ticks when I was growing up…they stayed the woods etc. something needs to be done I!
