Tick time in Tennessee: Milder winter could mean more ticks this season

A mild winter and wetter spring/early summer is leading to a larger bug population this season. When on the lake, be sure to prepare for ticks, mosquitoes and chiggers. While the Corps of Engineers does mow and maintain developed recreation areas, that will not totally halt these aggravating pests from coming into the area. Learn about them and pack the appropriate insect repellent.

wbir.com For most Tennesseans, Lone Star and common dog ticks are the two people should watch out for. Lone Star ticks carry the infamous red meat allergy-causing 'Alpha-gal,' and dog ticks carry Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.

Parents warn about electric shock drowning after 15-year-old girl's tragic death

Swimming should be at a designated beach or out on the lake with a life jacket. Marinas on the lake are required to post signage and limit where customers can and cannot swim. If you are told not to swim in the marina harbor, it is so you will be safe to swim at other locations!

wowktv.com The parents of a 15-year-old girl, who tragically died from electric shock drowning while swimming near her family’s lake house, are speaking out about the rarely reported phenomenon after it took the lives of two more women.

June 1-9 is National Fishing & Boating Week. Most states allow anglers to fish on public waters without a fishing license sometime in June. Check for upcoming free fishing days in your state and make sure everyone wears a life jacket. #PleaseWearIt http://takemefishing.org/nfbw
