Remember: Ticks prefer warm, dark areas! Thorough inspections are now an absolute necessity and no longer an option.

Top 7 places to check for ticks on the human body:

1.    In and around the hair

2.    In and around the ears

3.    Under the arms

4.    Inside the belly button

5.    Around the waist

6.    Between the legs (all private areas, including the buttocks)

7. Behind the knees
