Be tick aware

Salisbury Journal: Be tick aware Be tick aware

COUNTRYSIDE lovers in Wiltshire are being advised to be “tick aware” this summer so they know what to do should they come into contact with the bugs.

And people had the chance to view the bugs under a microscope in Salisbury's Market Place last Tuesday while information has been sent to GP surgeries, pharmacies, libraries and schools. Ticks can be found throughout the year, but are most active between spring and autumn. They can transmit bacteria which can cause a potentially serious illness such as Lyme Disease.
