This webinar will teach you how to get that tick identified. It is important to know what the tick is, so you know if there are other actions you need to take to protect yourself. This webinar will teach you 10 things you must know about ticks, and 5 TickSmart actions to take. Presented by Dr. Thomas N. Mather, Professor & Director, Center for Vector-Borne Disease and TickEncounter Resource Center, University of Rhode Island.
