Ticks keep themselves near the ground, on a level of approx. 80 cm. They don’t fall off trees!
- Closed shoes and body-covering, thight clothes are a protection against ticks. It’s best to pull the socks over your pants. In addition, you should spray your clothes with a tick repellent, e.g. with kik NATURE tick repellent.
- Only walk in the middle of paths. Avoid bushes, high gras and brush-wood.
- Systematically search your body for ticks after a stay outdoors. Pay particular attention to the hollow of the knees, the pubic region, the navel, the armpits, the shoulders, the neck and behind the ears (for children also the head). Remove the tick immediatly when you find one.
