Biology and Management

Ticks are blood-feeding pests of people, pets and wildlife. Their activity tends to be focused seasonally and in particular habitats. The prevalence and distribution of tick-borne diseases have increased dramatically during recent decades. IdentifyUS offers basic information about the biology and management of ticks to help you understand how you might reduce your risks of encountering ticks and of acquiring tick borne disease. You can help us maintain this effort with a thoughtful contribution.
