Welcome to the State of California 


The best way to keep from getting babesiosis, or any other disease from ticks, is to avoid areas where ticks are found. Stay on trails away from tall grasses where ticks may occur. Wear light-colored long pants and long-sleeved shirts when outside. Apply tick repellents to your clothes and skin. Most importantly, if you have been in an area where ticks may occur, thoroughly check your body immediately after returning indoors and promptly remove any ticks you find.
