Lyme Disease is the most prevalent infectious disease in Massachusetts and is now considered to be a public health crisis, but tick-borne diseases are preventable! Join entomologist Larry Dapsis for a presentation in Wildlands Trust‘s Community Conservation Barn to better understand the basic life cycle and ecology of deer ticks, occurrence of tick-borne illnesses, and learn how to protect yourself, your yard, and your pet.
