Ticks Off! Controlling Ticks That Transmit Lyme Disease On Your Property

In many parts of the country, spring into fall is the "hot season" for Lyme disease. Upwards of 70% of Lyme disease victims are infected in their own yards, and the number of Lyme disease cases has been climbing in recent years. Fortunately, the arsenal of tick-control measures has also recently expanded, and these tick-thwarting strategies are detailed in the new book "Ticks Off! Controlling Ticks That Transmit Lyme Disease on Your Property". The tick control measures described in the book focus on two main themes; landscape alterations and host control. These strategies, applied in tandem, are likely to be more effective in substantially reducing tick populations compared to using any single method of tick control. As Lyme disease has become more common in many parts of the United States, more and more property owners are seriously exploring tick control measures. Ticks Off! is designed as a concise, up-to-date resource for controlling Lyme disease-transmitting ticks. Written by an experienced tick biologist, this book will give you the tools to make your yard inviting for humans, but not for ticks. Heavily referenced so you can do further research yourself on ticks and tick control. Softcover, eighty pages, 13 illustrations.
