Ticks: It's More Than Just Lyme Disease - May 8, 2017 11:30
Stanley-Whitman House, 37 High St., Farmington
Speaker: Dr. Kirby Stafford III, Ph.D, Chief Entomologist, CT Agricultural Experiment Station
Tick-associated diseases are increasing. The CDC estimates there are 300,000 cases of Lyme disease each year. The black-legged ticks (deer ticks) carry four other pathogens that cause human disease. Dr. Stafford will review the epidemiology of Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases, basis tick biology, and his research on various practical and experimental methods of tick-bite prevention and tick control.
