Ticks and Lyme Disease - PSA (30 seconds)

Ken Speake, former KARE-11 reporter

(Loon calls in background)

Ken:The bite from one tiny deer tick can cause big problems. Don’t let it happen to you. Ken Speake here to remind you that early summer is when deer ticks are most active spreading Lyme disease and other serious diseases. These ticks can be common in wooded or brushy areas. So fight the bite when you go into these areas, by using a good tick repellant and check yourself for ticks, after you leave the woods.

Announcer: This message from the Minnesota Department of Health.
