The Huron County Health Unit is warning everyone to protect themselves against ticks and mosquitos. Public Health Inspector Keshia Hackett says bugs like these become more active in the warm weather, and while becoming ill from a bug bite in Huron County is low, it's still important to protect yourself against West Nile virus and Lyme disease. Some precautions you can take to avoid these diseases include wearing light, long sleeved tops and pants, insect repellent, and showering after returning from outside to wash off any loose ticks. The Health Unit conducts mosquito and tick surveillance programs. Their West Nile virus mosquito trapping program will begin mid-June.
