..."Ticks in IL found to have Heartland Virus"


"...continued from Home Page"


Simple tips to avoid tick bites include:


• Wear light-colored, protective clothing—long-sleeved shirts, pants, boots or sturdy shoes, and a head covering. Treat clothing with products containing 0.5 percent permethrin.


• Use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellents containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, or Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus (OLE). For assistance selecting the appropriate insect repellent, see EPA’s helpful search tool.


• Walk in the center of trails so grass, shrubs, and weeds do not brush against you.


• Check yourself, children, other family members, and pets for ticks every two to three hours.


• Remove any tick promptly by grasping it with tweezers, as close to the skin as possible and gently, but firmly, pulling it straight out. Wash your hands and the tick bite site with soap and water.
