Behavioral risk factors associated with reported tick exposure in a Lyme disease high incidence region in Canada

Education on the prevention of tick bites is the mainstay of public health intervention in the face of these emerging threats. To combat these emerging challenges, the primarystay of public health intervention is education on the prevention of tick bites. In a high incidence region of LD in a Canadian, LD high incidence area, the aim of this study was to determine the correlation between preventive behaviors against tick bites and LD and reported tick exposure. A PEP treatment was administered to a minority of respondents who needed medical attention after a tick bite. Several tick infections were traced to experimental tick testing, time spent outdoors, and living in a subregion with a higher public health LD risk level, according to multivariable models. Conclusions This report shows that in a region where the LD risk is among the highest in Canada, it shows the low prevalence of preventive behaviour against tick bites.
