All you need to know about tick bite prevention

For some Canadians, enjoying nature involves protecting themselves from mosquitoes or watching out for bears. Similarly, ticks are something to be aware of, for yourself and your pets, both around your property and when participating in outdoor activities further afield.

Although the risk for ticks and diseases spread by ticks is present across all provinces, it does vary, with Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia consistently reporting the highest numbers of blacklegged ticks and Lyme disease cases in Canada.
