MASTER GARDENER SERIES : SPRING IS TICK AND LYME DISEASE SEASON
MANAHAWKIN – The Master Gardeners of Ocean County will present “Spring is Tick and Lyme Disease Season” at 1:30 at the Stafford Branch of the Ocean County Library on Monday, May 10th.
It’s spring and that means it’s Lyme disease season and time for tick awareness. Lyme disease is transmitted to humans via the bite of an infected deer tick.
Learn to identify areas where ticks like to hide, and what you can do to make your yard unattractive to ticks.
During the remaining time, the Master Gardener team will address any questions you may have. They will be at the library from 1:00 – 4:00 PM. You may also bring in dying or diseased clippings for plant diagnosis and possible remedies.
The Stafford branch is located at 129 N. Main St. in Manahawkin. This program is free and open to the public. Please register by calling the branch at (609) 597-3381, registering online at www.theoceancountylibrary.org or in person. If you have any questions, call the library for specific information.
