NORWALK - As the weather begins to warm up, state health officials are warning residents about tick dangers that come with being outdoors.

Officials say do not wait until it's too late to take steps to prevent Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.

Arborist Frank Clancy, of Green Sprays in Milford, says there are many ways to protect against ticks.

He recommends lawn spraying, wearing light-colored clothing and checking your head and ears each day.
