Safety from mosquitoes and ticks through education and information
What is the Waltham Services Academy® purpose?
We think the best way to stay safe from mosquitoes and ticks starts with education. The more you know about these pests, the better prepared you will be. Our purpose is to share our Entomologist’s knowledge with the community at large so our friends and neighbors can stay safe from ticks and mosquitoes and the diseases they transmit. Our cold, wet winters followed by humid summers provide pests like ticks and mosquitoes with just the right environment to not only live, but to thrive. Getting expert tips from an Entomologist who is not only Board Certified, but also lives in the area is just one more way we can help with public health and safety.
Why the Waltham Services Academy® program?
Did you know that 75% of Lyme disease cases are contracted within 100 feet of the home? How about that as little as 1% but up to as much as 50% of any given tick population has Lyme disease to pass along? Did you also know that mosquitoes are considered the most dangerous animal in the world based on the sheer number of diseases they can transmit? Our Entomologists know and you will, too with an educational presentation from the Waltham Services Academy®. Our program is all about getting you the information you need and want to keep you, your family, and your pets safe.
Why have a Waltham Services Academy® presentation?
With a Waltham Services Academy® presentation, you can help our communities be better prepared to take on the mosquitoes and ticks that seem to plague New England. Hearing from an actual Entomologist on what can be done to not only mitigate the population of mosquitoes and ticks but also how stay clear of the places that could be harboring them is just the kind of information our friends and neighbors need. Together we can help everyone stay safe and healthy this season.
