Tick-Borne Disease Prevention: Stuff for Kids

  Timothy Tickfinder and his dog Bullseye

Kids may be more likely to encounter ticks and get tick-bites because they may go off trails, play in grassy areas or in leaves under trees in natural habitats where ticks are found. They may also be less likely to notice a tick if one attaches to them. The tick-bite prevention information on this page is designed for youth in the 4th – 6th grade and can be used in the classroom, scout groups, other youth groups, or at home.
