The second webinar in the Northeastern IPM Center's tick IPM series will be this Wednesday, June 24, at 1:00 p.m. EST.
Dr. Stephen Rich, director of the Laboratory of Medical Zoology at the University of Massachusetts, will discuss how to proceed when efforts to reduce sources of tick bites—or to prevent bites altogether—have failed. He will
• explain the feeding process and why timing is essential to disease transmission;
• outline approaches for assessing the risk of tick-borne disease (including an overview of known pathogens);
• describe laboratory testing procedures for ticks and humans;
• present passive-surveillance database summaries and provide links for customized searches of that database.
