Free Mosquito, Tick Talk
Organization: Westmoreland Conservation District
Description: Summer has finally arrived! Don’t let mosquitos and ticks ruin your outdoor fun.
Learn proven ways to protect yourself from these insects and the infections they can carry – including West Nile virus and Lyme disease – at a free seminar presented by the Westmoreland Conservation District on Wednesday, July 18 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Chelsea Gross, West Nile virus program technician with the conservation district, will present the two-part informational seminar.
Gross implements the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s West Nile virus program in Westmoreland County and, for the first hour of the seminar, she will focus on actions you can take to reduce the number of mosquitos on your property and the repellants you can use to keep them away.
During the second hour, she will talk ticks – the diseases they can carry, preventing their bites, what to do if you are bitten, and the symptoms of tick-borne infection. This part of the seminar is a presentation entitled “Dare 2B Tick Aware,” and Gross has been certified by The PA Lyme Resource Network to lead it.
There will be a short break between the two parts of the seminar and light refreshments will be served.
Admission is free, but space is limited and you must register by July 17.
