Tick Tactics: Knowing the enemy is half the battle, the other is having a plan
Three scientists have made it their mission to understand this dangerous pest. By looking at the problem from slightly different perspectives, each will bring you data, studies, observations and strategies to help you create a plan of protection. Protection for you and your staff and just as importantly, protection for your clients. Learn important differences among the species, efficacy of organic and conventional controls, environmental management methods, and available repellents. Then use this data to your tactical advantage!
