The winter frost is usually our #1 defense against ticks each year. 

 

Ticks are active until the outdoor temperature reaches 28 or below and remains there for an extended period of time. The colder the winter, the less exposure we have to ticks come summer. If you recall, Virginia's winter was NOT very cold. 

 

We need to be prepared to fend for ourselves this summer!

Johnson Center Tick Kit:

This kit will provide you with the tools to: 

  • Protect yourself if you're spending an extended period of time in the woods or another high-risk area. 

  • Remove the tick from your skin. 

  • Send the tick to a lab to be inspected from pathogens. 

  • Prevent Lyme from settling into your tissues for 6-12 days after the bite. 

  • Protection against Lyme for the 3-5 days until your Tick Report returns and you can determine if antibiotics are needed. 

  • Prevent you from pre-emptively going on antibiotics. 

The Johnson Center has created a Triage Tick Kit:

This is the perfect kit to keep in your hiking or gardening bag! The Tick Bite Formula is made up of herbs that Dr. Buhner, a holistic Lyme specialist, has discovered to prevent Lyme from becoming chronic.

The formula was bottled by hand, in small batches from a small company in Massachusetts. The plants were picked at peak potency and processed within 24 hours to preserve active chemical constituents as well as inherent vitality.
