Special Collection on Tick Integrated Pest Management

In response to the growing problem of tick-borne diseases—such as Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and others—Entomological Society of America and Oxford University Press have curated a collection of articles on integrated tick management and its components. These articles are freely available to assist researchers, medical professionals, policy makers, and others working on tick management. We invite you to read our collection to learn more about ticks and the diseases they transmit.
