SLT Tick Talk

Join Blake Dinius from the Plymouth County Extension Service for a special talk titled “Hate Ticks?” hosted by the Sippican Lands Trust (SLT) on Friday, February 8at 6:00 pm. The tick talk will be held at the Sippican Woman’s Club, 152 Front Street, Marion.

            Hate ticks? 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 for contracting any tick-borne disease. With the right knowledge and tools, all tick-borne diseases are preventable.

            This special workshop will review basic tick biology, scientifically proven protection methods, and bust any commonly held myths.
