The only danger that I discovered were ticks and moskitoes that could bite you, especially in the forests.
Ticks are numerous there, especially in June.
But they are not all poisonous, although you have to remove them with care.
They say the ticks are very poisonous in June.
The tick often remains attached to your skin, so the sooner you get rid of it, the better.
However, do not pull, it may leave a part of it still embedded.
What do you have to do?
* Either "drown" the tick by covering it with a heavy oil like salad oil or machine oil. If it does not separate immediately, leave the oil over the wound for about half an hour and then slowly and carefully remove the tick's body with tweezers;
*or light a cigarette and apply the glowing end to the tick's body taking care not to burn the skin. It should now fall off.
Use tick-repellent chemicals on skin and clothing, which will considerably reduce the risk of infection in tick-infested localities.
Although all the locals say their insects are not infectious at all.
