In this episode of The Maritime Outdoorsman, Dave continues the discussion about Ticks & Lyme Disease with Vett Lloyd, a biologist at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick. Vett shifted her focus from cancer to ticks and lyme disease after becoming infected herself while gardening. Now Vett’s lab is one of only a few places ticks can be sent in the Maritimes for lyme disease testing.
