Insects are emerging as the weather warms up and tick season has arrived
March 25th, 2022
Now that warmer weather has arrived in the Central Okanagan, check yourself, your children and your pets if you’re out for a walk, bike or hike.
Tick season is here, and although Lyme disease is rare in this part of British Columbia, it’s not unheard of.
“The nicest part about living in Kelowna is that the most common tick is not the one that is likely to give you Lyme disease. But, sometimes you get a false sense of security,” said Janet Sperling, PHd Entomology, University of Alberta and president of the Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation.
