SANFORD–It’s tick season and the word is “caution.”  According to information from the Lee County Health Department, ticks are usually active in the spring, summer and fall; however, the adults of some species are active in the winter.  When seeking a blood meal, ticks move from leaf litter, from a crack or crevice along a building foundation, or from another secluded  place, to grass or shrubs where they attach themselves to an animal as it passes.  They also attach themselves to humans.  To learn more about ticks, go to the county’s web site.

More local news can be heard Monday through Friday on WWGP 1050 and Classic Hits & Oldies.
