Lyme Disease

July 17th, 2015

Lyme disease is caused by bacteria transmitted through the bite of an infected tick. Ticks are particularly present in forests, woodlands and tall grasses in several Québec regions. To avoid tick bites, follow simple measures to protect yourself. For example, walk along paths, cover your whole body with long, light-coloured clothing and use mosquito repellent. In case you are bitten, carefully remove the tick from your skin as soon as possible. For complete details, read the following pages:
