The Bugs that Bug You
The Mattapoisett Free Public Library has arranged for Blake Dinius from Plymouth County Extension to speak about ticks and mosquitoes to residents of our local area towns. This will be a free Zoom presentation that will take place on Mon., 6/29 from 2–3 pm. Registration is required for this free presentation. Please email bdinius@plymouthcountyma. gov
For as long as people have been alive on this earth, ticks and mosquitoes have existed. More than just annoying, the bite from one of these can pass on germs with life-altering consequences. Most people know something about mosquitoes and ticks such as to wear long sleeves and pants or use DEET. But, what they DON’T know may leave them vulnerable. Understanding mosquito and tick biology holds the key to preventing disease. In this workshop, we will bust myths and discuss both chemical and non-chemical protection methods. With the right knowledge and tools, all vector-borne diseases are preventable.
