"Let's tackle ticks together by making sure we're all tick aware", says TV scientist, Dr. James Logan
Channel 4 'Embarrassing Bodies' science presenter, Dr. James Logan, is an expert on ticks (blood-sucking parasites).
"A tick bite commonly leads to irritation, allergic reaction or localised infection but, in some cases, there can be more serious consequences such as Lyme disease (Borreliosis), which is a tick-borne disease. Being 'Tick Aware' can help to keep you and your pets safe while enjoying the great outdoors".
