When is tick season?

Answer

Tick season begins in early spring and continues through fall. Unfortunately, however, some tick species, including the black-legged deer ticks that carry Lyme disease, can remain active throughout the year.

Because some ticks resume activity as soon as the snow melts, the ground thaws and temperatures rise above freezing, precautions should always be taken during outdoor activities. In addition to reducing exposure risks by avoiding tick-infested areas, such as the woods and overgrown vegetation, hikers should wear pants tucked into their socks, use tick repellents on their skin and clothing, and frequently check their skin, hair and equipment for ticks.
