As the weather gets warmer, it’s fun to plan outdoor activities for children. However, warmer weather brings about pesky mosquitoes that have the potential to carry West Nile Virus (WNV).
In addition, Black-legged ticks, also known as deer ticks, can carry the bacterium that causes Lyme
disease. Black-legged ticks are very small in size and are found low to the ground in tall grasses or bushy areas.
Increased exposure to mosquitoes and ticks heightens the chances of becoming infected so be sure to take the following precautions when spending time outdoors:
minimize time outdoors at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active;
avoid tick infested areas;
when possible, wear long sleeved, light coloured clothing to cover exposed skin;
tuck your shirt into your pants and your pants into your tall socks;
children aged two to 12 can use bug repellent containing up to10% DEET, applied 3 times daily. One application should be effective for three hours against mosquitoes and ticks;
have a shower to rinse away any ticks that maybe on your body;
check yourself , your family and your pets for ticks; and
eliminate standing water around your home that may serve as mosquito breeding sites.
To book a presentation on West Nile and Lyme disease using fun and interactive games with the SMARTboard in your classroom, please call the Peterborough County-City Health Unit at 705-743-1000 ext 236 or 285
