The warm weather is here and so are ticks. And that can mean trouble for anyone spending time in the woods. Many of those ticks carry diseases — including the dangerous Lyme disease. Jim Low of the Department of Converservation says it’s important for anyone who thinks he or she has been bitten by a tick to get it out of their skin as quickly as possible. Generally, you’re safe from diseases unless the tick latches on for awhile. If you are bitten by a tick, the telltale sign for Lyme Disease is a bull’s eye rash that begins at the side of the bite and spreads outward.
