Yes, mosquitoes and ticks can transmit diseases to humans, including some really not-so-nice ones. Join Eric “The Bug Guy” Dotseth, a medical entomologist with the La Crosse County Health Department and General Biology Instructor at Globe University, to learn about the signs and symptoms of these diseases, as well as how to prevent and treat them. You’ll also get to go outside and see first-hand how scientists trap these pesky critters and see specimens of the various species.
