Kennebec Journal, WABI (Channel 5) and WVII (Channel 7) reported on Bug Maine-ia at the Maine State Museum in Augusta. Staff from the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Hudson Museum were among the 24 presenters at the annual educational event featuring live insects. UMaine Extension staff taught children how to identify and safely remove ticks, WABI reported. “Ticks are becoming a topic among the kids, especially as their teachers are reminding them to do tick checks and to be careful going into the brush,” said Clay Kirby, an insect diagnostician with UMaine Extension.
