Cornell University

Minimizing Tick Exposure and Monitoring for Ticks

Friday, July 13, 2018

826 Euclid Ave, Syracuse, NY 13210

Friday, July 13 – 10 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

This workshop is for municipalities and volunteer/community groups interested in monitoring for ticks and tracking local tick populations over time. As ticks and tick-borne-illnesses continue to be an increasing concern in Onondaga County, several communities have started to monitor for ticks once or twice a year to establish some knowledge about local populations. Having trained and engaged municipal staff and community volunteers is essential if communities would like to engage in this activity.

This workshop will discuss ticks, tick identification and habitat characteristics, and minimizing human-tick interactions through landscaping practices and taking protective measures. There will be a field section showing how to monitor for ticks using a “tick drag” technique, as well as how to organize and conduct a community tick drag.

There is an indoor and outdoor session so please dress for the weather, and be sure to wear closed toed shoes. Bring water and sunscreen.
