    There is no way to fully avoid ticks during the summer time but luckily there are ways to minimize your exposure to ticks.

    The best way to minimize exposure is to check for ticks whether that is checking your body, clothes, or pets. The use of insect repellant with twenty to thirty percent DEET can lower your chances of tick bites. It is also important to know where to expect ticks.
