Kirkham Scouts

A big thank you to 2nd Kirkham Scouts for inviting ESCCAP UK & Ireland to speak on keeping scouts and their pets safe from Lyme disease. We have donated tick removers to the group as they prepare to enjoy the countryside this spring and summer. The key message to Scouts, pets owners and the wider public is that it takes at least 24 hours for Lyme disease to be transmitted after ticks bite so daily checking for ticks and prompt removal will help to reduce the risks of transmission, as well as covering up in the undergrowth and treating dogs with a product that rapidly kills or repels ticks.
