Surviving All that Summer Brings Our Way

For some of us, the snow has melted and the temperatures are rising. The urge to leave the confines of our warm homes are calling us to the great outdoors. Long walks in the woods, trips to the beaches, excursions to parks and picnicking in grassy fields may be on your list of activities. It’s hard to believe it’s that time of year already. Time to think about tick prevention!
