As summer gets underway so does killer tick season.
The ticks are found mainly in forests. Over 200,000 people have already been bitten, with half catching tick-borne encephalitis which can cause paralysis and death.
Here are some simple guidelines on how to avoid being bitten. When walking in the forest, avoid touching tree branches. Ticks like to hang out on them and they could fall on you. Also, cover your body from top to bottom – no shorts or T-shirts. That may sound tough in summer but it could save your life!
