Don’t let yourself or your loved ones experience the horrors that this disease can bring upon your physical, mental and financial health! With the number of new people acquiring Lyme skyrocketing to 300,000+ per year, chances are this disease will hit close to home. This educational presentation will provide some essential steps to protecting yourself, your children, your pets and others you care about.
We will share important information relevant to gardeners, landscapers, homeowners, scouts, kids attending outside camps/sports, pet owners and more.
