Nearly a hundred people packed into Jernabi Coffeehouse, Potsdam, on Wednesday, to learn how to prevent Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. Presenter Dr. Stephen Rich, University of Massachusetts, said putting permethrin on clothing and shoes, 30% DEET on skin, tucking pant legs into socks, and checking your body for ticks daily are ways to prevent Lyme disease from infected ticks.
