Prevent Lyme disease!
Beware of tick bites that can transmit Lyme disease, a disease that can lead to complications if it is not detected in time. Ticks thrive in wooded areas. Tick bites are usually painless, and most people do not know that they have been bitten. Lyme disease in humans can have serious symptoms such as extreme fatigue, recurring arthritis and neurological problems, but it can also be effectively treated. Useful tips : - Use insect repellent containing DEET (active ingredient that repels insects) or Icaridin
(always follow the instructions). - Shower or take a bath within two hours after each outdoor outlet to get rid of unattached ticks Protect yourself by using resources developed by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) Or visit the Portail santé mieux-être of MSSS: http://www.sante.gouv.qc.ca/en/problemes-desante/maladie-de-lyme/
