Tick protection outdoors when fishing

- Bug spray. Insects can transfer serious ailments such as Lyme Disease and West Nile Virus. When active outdoors, always apply bug spray and avoid using scented soaps, perfumes or hair sprays.
- Light-colored and lightweight clothing. In warm weather the proper attire is essential in helping to reflect heat and sunlight, and allowing your body to maintain normal temperatures.
Tell someone where you are going and when you will return. When you use the outdoors, whether hiking, biking, fishing or swimming, make sure family and friends know where you are.
Watch for ticks to get into your clothing and use a good tick repellent.EverGlades outdoors is about the best you can use.
