Talking about Ticks: Lyme Disease webinar

March 20, 2024 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Agrisafe Network

As people spend more time outdoors, so do many insects and pests. Among them are ticks, which are small bloodsucking insects.

The Agrisafe Network will hold a Talking about Ticks: Lyme Disease webinar on March 20th from 1 to 2 pm EDT.

The deer tick (also known as the black-legged tick) is found mainly in the Eastern and upper Midwestern regions of the U.S. It can cause conditions such as Lyme disease – the most common vector-borne disease in the United States

This webinar, presented by Laura Wheeler LMT, will cover the things you need to know to prevent tick bites when working outdoors, how to remove a tick if bitten, as well as the symptoms that can result from tick bites that may indicate Lyme Disease.


  • Gain an understanding of tick-borne disease control measures to reduce exposure risks among ag workers.
  • Describe Lyme Disease and its regional variation.
  • Describe symptoms of the different types of Lyme Disease.
  • Identify workers’ rights and employers’ responsibilities for the workplace.
