Participants of this workshop will learn to identify ticks found in Pennsylvania and understand their lifecycle, hosts and habitats. Participants will learn Integrated Tick Management strategies for reducing the occurrence of ticks in the landscape including cultural practices for plant maintenance, exclusion of host wildlife, and pesticides for management of ticks in lawn and landscape.
