Ticks and the Diseases They Carry

As land is deforested and tick ranges expand, Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses are a growing threat to humans and pets. In Part 2 of Disease Vectors in the U.S.A. we will discuss the ecological context of tick-borne disease with consideration for how environmental factors and human behavior contribute to disease risk. Experts will also share measures to reduce your risk of illness.

Speaker: Rick Ostfeld, Disease ecologist at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies
