- Ticks can only be found in the forest. - That's not true. Blood lovers love parks, gardens and jockeys, that is, any bushy, grassy area.
- Watch out for the guy jumping in your neck! - The ticks live happily in the tall and most often come from there. That is why not only the forest walk, but also after a day in the park or playground, we look closely at ourselves and our children.

At least one month must pass between the first two. And a third vaccination will be needed 6-9 months later. This is followed by 3 and 5 yearly vaccinations. It is recommended to start the vaccination series in the coming months, so that they will be protected for spring, the beginning of outdoor activities. After a month of untreated ticks, it is recommended to start the vaccination series a month later!
