Cover Up

Shorts and a t-shirt may keep kids cool in the heat, but it also makes it easier for ticks to attack. If your child plans on playing outdoors, dress them in a long shirt and pants tucked into their socks. For extra protection, spray their clothes with a permethrin repellent an hour before they plan on going outside.
