Tick Prevention and Identification

Helpful Resources from UNH Extension

There are many organizations that support individuals and communities either at a local or national level. Once per month, for Wellness Wednesday, we will share one of these well-respected organizations in order to connect you with more resources that support health and wellbeing.

For most of us, ticks are the things of nightmares, and that makes this season both a blessing and a curse. The warmer weather and longer days are welcome … the reemergence of ticks can be a horror

Fortunately, the UNH Extension is a great, free resource in the fight against ticks! Please use the links below to explore UNH Extension resources to help keep you, your family, and your pets safe:

We include local and national resources, individual and group programs and practices, and personal stories, videos, or songs that have something to teach us all. We are always seeking guest contributors!
