Ticks and Tick-Borne Diseases

Apr 18, 2019

As we get out about and about in nature with the warmer weather, it's time we also need to be vigilant about ticks and tick bites. On The Point, we discuss the health risks associated with tick bites, and best practices to limit exposure. 

Guests on the program are: Larry Dapsis, Entomologist and Deer Tick Program Coordinator at Cape Cod Coorperative Extension; and Dick Johnson, Dukes County Tick Program Biologist. Mindy Todd hosts. 

Watch informative videos of Larry Dapsis on the tick topic.
