An invitation from the Smithsonian Natural History Museum: Disease Vectors in the US
I am writing to share details of our upcoming webinar series, Disease Vectors of the U.S.A. In addition to remaining vigilant about preventing the spread of COVID-19, we must also remain aware of the diseases spread by mosquitoes and ticks as we and our pets take in the outdoors this summer. West Nile, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Lyme and heartworm are just a few of the diseases that we and our pets risk contracting when seeking safe outdoor activities. Join us for this two-part series to hear what experts have to say about the hidden lives of mosquitoes and ticks and how to protect yourself, your family, and your pets against mosquito- and tick-borne illnesses.
- Pt. 1 – Mosquitoes and the Diseases They Carry, Tuesday September 22 6:00-7:15 p.m. EDT
- Pt. 2 –Ticks and the Diseases They Carry, Tuesday September 29 6:00- 7:15p.m. EDT
