New York Launches Tick Contol Plan

(Albany, NY) -- New York is announcing a plan to control Lyme and tick-borne disease in the state this summer.

Part of the plan includes strategic application of eco-friendly tick control treatments in parks with the highest risk of tick exposure and Lyme disease to the public. In addition, the state will expand the use of "tickicide" deer treatment feeding stations that help to control ticks by white-tailed deer. While deer feed on corn at the station, treated rollers brush insecticide against the animal's neck, head and ears, where many adult ticks tend to feed.
