Why Tick Checks For You & Your Pets Are More Important Than Ever


On This Green Earth, we hear from Nate Brooks, the Environmental Health Director for Summit County.

Brooks comes on to talk about ticks; dog, deer and otherwise.

We discuss the reasons for this increase, the different types of ticks, what diseases they potentially carry, and what can be done to reduce your exposure to them.
