Avoiding Lyme and other tick-borne diseases requires avoiding a tick bite! Mosquitoes, too, can transmit diseases, but mostly just ruin your outdoor plans.
Join Cornell University’s Dr. Jody Gangloff-Kaufmann as she talks about how to manage mosquitoes in the home landscape safely. She will also address the different ticks in our area (including Nassau County preserves), their biology and the diseases they carry. We will discuss how to protect yourself and others from being bitten by both mosquitoes and ticks. Free tick removal kits will be offered to attendees willing to participate in a short survey.
