This handbook includes basically everything you need to know about ticks. The tick biology, tick species, tick associated diseases, personal protection, and all types of management approaches. I mean, just look at the table of contents to get an idea.
Ticks could be bad this season
The ticks have arrived for this year and so have other pests. I was listening to the radio yesterday when the radio host told a story about how he was walking outside and lifted up his arm and he saw a tick on his arm! He mentioned that he hadn’t seen a tick on him in several years. Does this mean the ticks are coming out in full-force this season? If so, you need to be on the lookout and do your research in the Connecticut Tick Management Handbook.
