Gov. Cuomo Cautions New Yorkers About Ticks
(WENY) State leaders alerted New Yorkers on how they can prevent Lyme and Other Tick-Borne diseases. Cuomo said it is important to ensure safety remains a top priority as New Yorkers are out taking advantage of the Spring weather. Deer Ticks are active when the weather stays above freezing, usually from April through November and can be found in areas with vegetation and even in well-manicured yards. You can protect yourself by wearing light colored clothing, tucking your pants into socks and doing a tick check after being in wooded or grassy areas.
