Don't get ticked this fall: NWHU

The Northwestern Health Unit (NWHU) is encouraging individuals working in or exploring the outdoors with friends, family or pets this fall, to make small changes that can help to prevent tick bites.

Even though exposure to ticks can occur from April to November, there are two surges when ticks are typically more active, one in the spring and one in the fall.
