DANE COUNTY (WKOW) — As peak tick season begins in May, public health officials are warning to be extra careful of tick-borne diseases this year.
**A few notes: I would NEVER wear black when doing yard work. I wear light colored pants and tuck them into my socks and I also wear long sleeves. I spray my shoes, socks, pants, and sleeves with Permethrin. Those Japanese Barberry plants in the news clip harbor many ticks and I found one on my leg just yesterday.
Contact WKOW and thank them for this story, but also tell them you want more in-depth news coverage on a Wisconsin epidemic in which many Wisconsinites go undiagnosed and untreated.
