  • Let’s start with the basics.  What is Lyme disease, and how can you contract it?
  • Personally I only think about ticks and Lyme disease in the summer because that’s when I spend the most time outdoors, do we only have to worry about Lyme disease in the summer?
  • What is Pure Solutions doing to help?
  • Typically when companies try to protect against insects, there is a harmful effect on the environment from toxins. How is Pure Solutions’ different?
