Plus a new invasive species coming to Maryland – the Lanternfly

Town Center Community Association is hosting a Tick and Mosquito Prevention Information Session presented by Columbia Association on Friday, May 18 from 7-8 pm at Historic Oakland, 5430 Vantage Point Road. Residents will learn about ticks in the area, tick prevention techniques, and how to spot the symptoms of Lyme disease. This summer is predicted to be a bad year for ticks, so join us and learn ways to protect you and your family from tick-borne diseases. You will also learn some interesting facts about mosquitoes, and how to combat mosquito breeding in your neighborhood.

Added to the conversation is the Lanternfly, an invasive species expected to come to Maryland this summer. Learn what to look for with this pest.
