Ticks - they're a part of spring and summer. But experts say this year, they'll be out in force after a mild winter.
They say warmer winters lead to an increase in ticks and the diseases they can carry as well.
So as you head out to enjoy the great outdoors, keep in mind these pests are out there. Be sure to thoroughly check after being outside. Be sure to check in places where they can hide like under your arms and behind your knees.
If you find a tick latched on, take hold of the tick firmly and pull perpendicular to your skin gently.
