Ticks are bad news for outdoors lovers and their pets also.

Doctors now warn that ticks may spread the Powassan virus.

Now more dangers from ticks are being recognized. Bad news for anyone that likes to go outside is that tick season is here.

This just adds to the list of tick borne diseases. There is no treatment or cure for the Powassan virus.

When heading outdoors, be sure to use a tick repelling insect repellant, long sleeves and long pants, and tuck your pants into your boots if you can. Watch high grasses and vegetation where ticks like to wait for their next victim. Check yourself thoroughly before going indoors or they just may be uninvited dinner guests. Also make sure to check outdoor roaming pets thoroughly.
