Springtime is tick time!

 Do you know what to do to protect your family against Lyme carrying ticks?
  * Cut back vegetation and remove plant debris debris to reduce shade and moisture.
    * Keep grass mowed short.
    * Compost or bag leaf litter.
    * Avoid use of ground cover vegetation in frequently used areas.
    * Reduce cover for mice. Prune trees and shrubs. Clean up storage areas.
    * Use pavement, stones, mulches, and water-conserving landscape techniques.
    * Move swing sets away from the woodland edge.
