Louisiana Nature Center: Attack of the Bloodsuckers!
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - "Attack of the Bloodsuckers!" isn't a horror movie but an exhibit opening soon at a New Orleans nature center.
The Audubon Louisiana Nature Center in eastern New Orleans will teach why mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, leeches and other parasites are important to the ecosystem.
The free exhibit will also explain how to avoid them - or at least find them in time. A news release Friday said hints include keeping yards free of standing water so mosquitoes can't lay eggs in it, and checking yourself carefully for deer ticks before they can transmit Lyme disease.
It opens May 29 in the interpretive center and runs through Sept. 1.
