Hiking

When you go hiking, you really have to be careful, especially in the mountains and forests. Ticks are most common there, so keep to the middle of the path. If you want to go deeper into the woods, I would really recommend wearing tick-resistant clothing.

Wear tick repellent socks, but of course also other tick-resistant clothing. These will help you get through the woods without getting a tick bite. So my tip is: don’t go into the forest without tick-resistant clothing, in no time you will get a tick bite and that’s not nice. Especially with a view to an infection.

At home 

Ticks can also be around your house and often in your backyard, without bothering you, but they are there. What can you do about it? There are a few things you can do:

  • Keep your garden in a good state
  • Keep the woods and sitting areas secluded from each other

  • Keep materials such as stone and wood neat and tidy

Ticks get Lyme disease from mice, so if you keep materials like wood and stones neat and tidy, you won’t get mice. Also nearby your home, it is really important to wear anti tick clothing in the forest.
