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.

Larry Dapsis is from the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension, where he is the deer tick project coordinator and entomologist and is a member of the Barnstable County Task Force on Lyme and other Tick-Bourne Diseases.
