How to protect yourself from ticks

Since there are more and more cases of tick-borne encephalitis every year, in summer it is imperative to remember the rules of behavior in the forest.

For starters, don’t panic! The carriers of this virus in the middle lane are only a few percent of ticks.

Also, to protect yourself, you can get vaccinated. The first – in the fall, and the second – in the early spring.

Before going to the forest or the countryside, treat clothes with repellents. They can not be applied to the skin, but if the tick clings to such a tissue, it will die within a few minutes.Wear clothing that is tight and completely covers the body.

When you go into the forest, stay away from thick grass and shrubs, ticks are usually located there, they do not jump from trees.

After walking carefully examine yourself, the child and pets.

If you are still bitten by a tick, then remove it only at the first-aid post, then take it to the SES for analysis. If you find a virus, contact your epidemiologist immediately. It is strictly forbidden to twist the tick out of the skin yourself!

If you didn’t find an insect and a bite on yourself (when a tick bites, it releases anesthetic fluid), but you have a fever, headache, and vomiting for two weeks, then be sure to see a doctor.

Follow these simple rules and then you should not be afraid of these insects.
