How Ticks Spread Disease, and Why There Won't Be Fewer of Them This Year
With summer and tick season coming up in the next few months, today we talk with entomologist Phil Pellitteri…who ran the Insect Lab at the University of Wisconsin Madison for 35 years. He’ll be a guest at this month’s informal discussion series Science on Tap. WXPR’s Natalie Jablonski spoke with him about Wisconsin’s tick situation.
Phil Pellitteri will be talking more about preventing tick-borne illnesses at Science on Tap in Minocqua next week, along with pediatrician Holly Frost from Marshfield Clinic.
