Full Answer

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.

    How do pandas reproduce?

    A:

    Pandas reproduce through mating in a procedure that is similar to other mammals; the mating season occurs between March and May, when the female has a two- or three-day period of estrus. At that time, the male mounts the female panda, copulating for a period of time between 30 seconds and five minutes. Gestation then lasts between 95 and 160 days.
