Tick IPM #6: Host-Targeted Tick Control – What Works, What Doesn’t, and What’s New
Dr. Li will discuss IPM tools available for tick control, including host-targeted pesticide application products and biopesticides that he is testing in an ongoing USDA tick-control project in Howard County, Maryland. He will review studies published on the 4-Poster device and bait boxes, two currently available commercial products designed around the natural behavior of animals that tend to carry Lyme-transmitting ticks, and introduce the Bait Treatment System, a.k.a. “TickLick,” currently under development in his lab.
