Deer Ticks: One Bite Can Change Your Life
Wednesday, May 11, 6:30 PM
Did you know that Plymouth County has the third highest incidence of Lyme Disease in the Commonwealth? Do terms like Lyme Disease, Babesiosis and Anaplasmosis scare you? The good news is that tick-borne diseases are completely preventable. Join us for this important program presented by Middleborough resident Larry Dapsis, an entomologist who serves as the coordinator of the Deer Tick Project for the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension. He'll review the basic life cycle and ecology of deer ticks as well as incidence rates and distribution of tick-borne illnesses. Dapsis will present a three-point plan on how to protect yourself, your yard, and your pets.
No Registration required for this free program.
