Tick Alert - Alpha gal is a major issue in our service area

Administrator · 05/14/2018 ·

It is starting to be tick season. Alpha gal is a major issue in our service area. Take care out there! DEET seems to work best to prevent bites, but picaridin and other natural tick repellants work also. One note, the quoted physician says that usually alpha gal doesn't cause throat closure. We disagree, and have seen many severe, life threatening reactions.
