Ticks: “One Bite Can Change Your Life…”

Ticks: “One Bite Can Change Your Life…” with Entomologist Larry Dapsis from the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension.  

Lyme Disease is the most prevalent tick-borne disease in Massachusetts and is now considered to be a public health crisis. In addition to Lyme, deer ticks can carry the pathogens which cause Babesiosis, Anaplasmosis, Relapsing Fever and Powassan virus, all of which can be very serious. This program will review the basic life cycle and ecology of deer, dog and lone star ticks. This will include an exercise in tick identification using temporary tattoos and go over all elements of personal protection.    Join us for this virtual program that includes a Q&A session with Larry Dapsis.
