Taking appropriate precautions to avoid tick bites can reduce the risk of infection with ehrlichiosis, as well as other diseases transmitted by ticks. If possible, avoid areas where ticks are known to occur. When in these areas, wear light-colored long pants and long sleeve shirts. Insecticides with pyrethrin can be applied to clothing to further deter ticks from attaching. When outdoor activities are completed, thoroughly examine yourself and promptly remove any ticks that may be attached.
