Tick Warning

Posted on 13th August, 2021 in News

With the warmer weather come ticks, which thrive in woodland, long grass and even urban parks. SCC has put together a ‘tick list’ to follow to reduce the risk of being bitten including: Walking on clearly defined paths, wearing light coloured clothing, using an insect repellent, wearing long trousers and long-sleeved tops to reduce the skin exposure and carrying out a regular tick check after outdoor activities. Being bitten by a tick doesn’t usually require hospital treatment but people are advised to dial NHS 111 if they start to feel unwell.


Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
