A History is even better!

When it comes to tick-borne illnesses, a philosophy of increasing education and awareness is good. A history is even better. Over the past twelve years, Mainely Ticks has been a leader in promoting education and awareness of tick-borne illnesses to residents of Southern Maine and beyond. We've conducted numerous seminars and workshops through community based forums, adult education programs, home and flower shows, wellness and physician conferences, and through the distribution of over 62,000 free tick identification and removal guides, bookmarks, and educational brochures.
If you live in the Southern Maine area, contact Bob or Barb at to check on the availability of an educational seminar. Topics include assessing your risk, deer tick identification and removal, deer tick life cycle, landscape modifications, and personal protection strategies to avoid Lyme and associated tick-borne diseases.

Remember, when it comes to tick-borne illnesses, Prevention is the BEST Prescription!
