Save That Tick?

 

If you are confident that it not a dog tick (May through July), it is wise to preserve the tick in small pill bottle of alcohol, labeled with the date and time you removed it. In case you do become ill, show it to your physician.

 

If you experience a rash, headaches, fever and flu-like symptoms after a recent tick bite, see your healthcare provider right away.
