2020 had its fair share of trial, but 2021 has a few trials reserved as well. One unpleasant one is an uncommonly bad tick season in north central Washington. If you’re preparing for late spring and early summer camping trips, it’s going to be imperative to know how to avoid ticks while camping.
#1: Dress correctly
Ticks can latch on to any exposed skin, so the goal is to cover as much skin as possible. Tuck your pant legs into your socks, and your shirt into your pants. Wear light colored clothing so ticks will be easily visible on your clothing. It is also wise to wear a hat – ticks love to burrow in along hairlines and on your scalp.
