Ticks and tick-borne diseases such as Lyme disease are increasing. But with more knowledge and awareness of where and when the risks are highest or lowest, we can help reduce the chances of getting ourselves bitten in the first place. Come along to learn about tick and Lyme disease ecology, which habitats and animals create more or less risk, and the science behind judging where or when we are safest in the landscape.

"What Makes a Tick Tick? Fantas-tick Tips for How to Assess the Risk of Bites and Lyme Disease in the Great Outdoors" is part of 'The Ecology of Hosts - Diseases in the Environment'  Pint of Science Glasgow.
