May 4, 2020 — 

CTV spoke with Kateryn Rochon associate professor of entomology about our need to check for disease-carrying ticks every night now that warmer weather is here and we are getting our more.  

“Check yourself, check your pets, and your children. Try to prevent attachment by covering your skin with repellent and clothing,” Rochon told the news organization. ” Starting now, every Manitoban should do a daily tick check until there’s snow on the ground again.”
