Ticks can be found in the tall grass before and after the snow fall. If you find a tick, remove it with fine tipped tweezers by pulling straight out. Do not kill the tick while it's still attached, doing so will cause it to regurgitate into the blood stream greatly increasing the risk of infection. Some species of ticks may carry Lyme Disease, but your actual risk of infection is very low.
