Its that time of year again, when mosquito’s come out of hiding. This year we are supposed to have an uptick in both mosquito’s as well as ticks. Within the town of Hampton Falls, we have already had several instances of tick bites with the classic signs as you can see below.
A reminder with ticks, it is important that you remove a tick that has already bitten by the head or closest part of the tick to the skin. Using a pair of tweezers, remove slowly by pulling directly away from the skin in an upward manner–avoid any twisting or jerking motions. Make sure to seek professional medical attention as soon as possible!
Mosquito control is again coming up in full swing. Details can be found here.
