All About Mosquitoes and Ticks! (#BeOnlineWithAMC)

Thursday, June 18, 2020 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM

For as long as people have been alive on this earth, ticks and mosquitoes have existed. More than just annoying, the bite from one of these can pass on germs with life-altering consequences. (Step aside, great white sharks!). But, did you know Massachusetts is home to at least 50 species of mosquitoes and 12 species of ticks? These species all have different behaviors and life cycles. Some don't even bite humans!
