Many people are spending time outdoors this weekend, but health officials are issuing a warning about ticks.
The pesky bugs are out now -- and they're active.
Experts say they hang out anywhere there is tall grasses or wooded areas.
You can protect yourself from bites - and possibly Lyme disease - by wearing light coloured long sleeve shirts and long pants tucked into your socks.
They also recommend using a repellant with Deet or icaridin (ih-care-uh-din) in it, and make sure to check yourself, children, and pets after being outside.
