PROTECT YOURSELF FROM DEER TICK VIRUS
With The Best Tick Repellent
Even in winter months ticks can still be active on days when temperatures are above freezing and the ground isn’t covered by snow. This includes the Blacklegged (Deer) tick, which carries Deer Tick Virus (DTV) and Lyme disease. The best way to keep your family safe while enjoying the outdoors is by choosing the best DEET-free tick repellent, Ranger Ready. Picaridin 20% body-worn tick repellent is safe to use on children over one year and doesn't damange clothing or gear.
Talking Ticks: What is Deer Tick Virus?
"We are seeing increased surveillance of Deer Tick Virus, (DTV) for the most part, but not limited to, the East Coast. Deer Tick Virus, also classified as Powassan Virus, can often be found in Blacklegged ticks. Initial symptoms are very similar to that of other tick-borne illnesses- like a fever, chills and sore muscles. It can progress into encephalitis and meningitis if left undiagnosed and/or untreated."
