Knowing your ticks is important. Certain ticks are able to transmit certain diseases, so knowing what to look for, on yourself and your animals, is useful.
To help with that, Wellington Dufferin Guelph Public Health has released a quick-reference Tick ID Card. When folded in half, it’s about the size of a business card, so it’s easy to take with you wherever you go, whether that’s the cottage, local trails or your own backyard.
