The early spring weather might mean a higher likelihood of you carrying ticks around on your outdoor activities. According to the National Pest Management Association, ticks are expected to be in high numbers this year, many of which that could carry the debilitating Lyme disease. Ticks should not scare you away from outdoor activities like camping or hiking, but Newport State Park Naturalist Beth Bartoli says there are precautions you should take before you start.
Bartoli says if you find a tick on your clothing, a lint roller is a great way to safely remove the bug before it latches to your skin.
