  • May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month. If you're heading out on trails, remember to follow good tick prevention by wearing light-colored clothing, using an EPA approved repellent, such as 20-30% DEET, picaridin, IR3535, or oil of lemon eucalyptus, and performing frequent tick checks on yourself and your pets.⁣
