They’re Back: Ticks!

It appears that tick season is beginning once again. The C.A.R.T. has seen a few ticks in the field and they are biting. The best defense is awareness. Check out these websites below for information on ticks and which ones are known to carry diseases. If you join the C.A.R.T. in the field be sure to check for ticks when you get home on both yourself and your clothing.
