TICKS / LYME DISEASE AWARENESS
Saratoga National Historical Park, like much of the northeast, has experienced increased tick activity.
You can minimize your chances of exposure by following a few simple steps:
—stay toward the center of trails and away from brush and unmowed grass;
—tuck pant legs inside socks;
—wear light-colored clothing (makes spotting ticks easier);
—use insect repellant.
Be sure to check yourself, and your pets, for ticks. Contact your health care provider if you find any attached to you.
