Courtesy of the PA Department of Health! June is Great Outdoors Month! As you enjoy all the natural beauty Pennsylvania has to offer, take precaution when outside to prevent Lyme disease. Ticks acquire Lyme and other tick-borne diseases from infected animals and pass them along to humans and animals. Try to avoid high grass and brushy areas, stay on the center of trails, and wear insect repellent with DEET.
