Tick Talk: One Bite Can Change Your Life

June 28, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

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 presented by Cape Cod Cooperative Extension’s County Entomologist, Larry Dapsis, 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. A handout will be provided that covers all elements of personal protection.
