Ticks – be aware! Image
Be aware of how to deal with ticks and minimise the risks - and continue to enjoy the outdoors.

In grassy or woodland areas, it is important to be aware of the health risks carried by ticks. Ticks are tiny spider-like creatures which attach themselves to passing animals and people. The following sources of information are available to download from this website: a Forestry Commission leaflet Ticks and tick-borne diseases, and a Public Health England leaflet Ticks and your health: Information about tick bite risks and prevention.
