Tick Safety Kit

I have been reading a lot about ticks and lyme disease lately, and as a mom, I worry about the safety of my family. My boys spend a lot of time outside exploring during the summer months, and I want to make sure they are safe. So, in addition to checking them regularly for ticks after they have been outdoors, I also put together a "tick safety kit".


A tick safety kit is easy and inexpensive to put together, and it's a great addition to your summer first aid kit. My kit includes:
  • a pair of fine tipped metal tweezers to remove the tick from the skin
  • alcohol swabs to clean the area once the tick has been removed
  • paper and a pen to record the time, date, location where the tick was found (e.g. on your left leg), and where you came into contact with the tick
  • a bag to hold the tick in case it needs to be tested


Do you have ticks in the area where you live? If you do, assembling a tick safety kit is a really good idea. You can also check out novascotia.ca/ticksafety or canada.ca/lymedisease for more information on protecting yourself against ticks and what to do after you remove the tick.
