The State of Maine has the highest incidence of Lyme Disease in the entire United States. Seniors ages 65+ have the highest incidence rate of Lyme disease in the State, followed closely by children ages 5-14. Bob Maurais from Mainely Ticks will share strategies to better protect your family from the ever increasing threat of ticks and tick-borne diseases. Items discussed will include personal protection strategies, landscape modifications and the life cycle of the deer tick. A PowerPoint presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer period. Educational literature will be distributed to all who attend, including fine pointed magnified tweezers, tick identification guides and bookmarks.
