The perils of ticks in the great outdoors, & why you should always carry tick tweezers when hill walking.

I have a pair of tick tweezers in my rucksack, it’s essential kit for this time of the year, especially if walking where there are animals, remember ticks love deer…..& then there’s the sheep. I was talking to a customer who is a ranger who likes hill walking in Scotland, he was telling me they even get onto the skin when you have your trousers tucked into your socks, they apparently crawl in, “lovely”. So be careful out there, Lyme disease is potentially fatal, most folk don’t get correctly diagnosed for years as Lyme mimics symptoms of other diseases.
