MATTAPOISETT — Come to the Mattapoisett Free Public Library on Wednesday, June 26 from 6 to 7 p.m. for a tick talk by local expert Blake Dinius and learn how to deal with the parasites.

Summer brings many recreational activities, but also nymphal deer ticks. The Center for Disease Control estimates nearly 300,000 cases of Lyme each year, with most cases occurring during the summer months. But with the right tools and knowledge, tick-borne diseases are preventable.

There is a lot of misinformation and fear surrounding ticks. All things ticks will be covered in this informational talk, including tick biology, tick-borne disease epidemiology, personal protection methods like repellents and proper removal, yard protection and pet protection, with the goal of bursting myths and learning  applications based on scientifically-backed data.

The Library is located at 7 Barstow Street and is handicap accessible.
