Resources to help you protect your family and pets
Wednesday June 5th, 2019

The Monmouth County Environmental Council is holding an annual round-table event titled “Ticks and Mosquitoes in Monmouth County: Resources to help you protect your family and pets.” Join us to learn from a variety of expert speakers about health threats from ticks and mosquitoes, local research and methods you can use to keep your family and pets safe.
We will hear presentations from Christopher Merkel, Public Health Officer from the Monmouth County Health Department; Prof. Dina Fonseca, Director of Rutgers Center of Vector Biology; Dr. Deborah Breitstein, veterinarian and co-owner of Animal Health Care of Marlboro; and Victoria Thompson, Superintendent of Monmouth County Mosquito Control Division. The presentations will be followed by a brief question and answer session with the speakers. Guests will also receive a copy of the new Eco-Tips Brochure: Dealing with Ticks and Mosquitoes. Monmouth County Division of Planning routinely publishes Eco-Tips brochures to coincide with round table events. To browse previous eco-tips brochures click here.
This event is planned to help the average citizen understand the threat ticks, mosquitoes and other pests pose to their families and their pets. Ultimately, guests will learn what strategies they can use to protect their families. Everyone is welcome. Gardeners, hikers, athletes, outdoor workers, pet owners and concerned citizens will find this program especially helpful. Although this event is free, please RSVP to Amber Mallm.
