Indiana health officials warn tick season has arrived



Indianapolis (AP) – Indiana health officials are urging people to now take precautionary measures against tick bites that warmer weather has arrived.

The small, blood-sucking creatures can transmit a number of diseases that cause fever and flu-like symptoms. The Indiana State Department of Health says more than 250 tick-borne illness cases have been reported in the state last year.

Health officials say people should often check for ticks on clothing, gear, pets and skin during and after outdoor activities in order to protect themselves.

Stuffing clothes in a high-temperature dryer for half an hour will kill the ticks and showering can help remove ticks that have not been removed. Those who have found a tick on their skin should seek medical help immediately.
