Tuesday, June 12 at 6:00 pm

Not only are ticks creepy, but the bite of a tick can transmit life-altering diseases. Don’t wait for ticks to bite! Arm yourself with knowledge and stand up to them! Studies have proven that people who are taught the proper tools and techniques drastically reduce their risks of contracting any tick-borne disease. With the right knowledge and tools, all tick-borne diseases are preventable. This workshop will review basic tick biology, scientifically proven protection methods, and bust any commonly held myths.
