Experiments could reduce the dangers of ticks
KENT — Critters large and small begin to emerge from their winter hiding places with the warmth of spring — and some of those critters are ticks.
In a talk sponsored by the Kent Land Trust on Friday, March 24, at Town Hall, Mike Benjamin and Joshua Ginsberg spoke about how ticks find us, how we can reduce the risk of disease, and steps being taken to control them.
Benjamin, who is land manager for the Kent Land Trust, described the biology and ecology of deer ticks, which are the most common species in northwest Connecticut.
