We can’t always be in control of our environment, but there are many things that we can do to help prevent tick bites! In 2019, state and local health departments reported 50,865 cases of tick-borne disease to CDC. In this lecture, we will learn about avoidance, prevention and reduction — and how each of these steps can help reduce your risk of tick bites and tick-borne diseases.

Dr. Erika Machtinger, Ph.D. holds a BS from the University of Delaware in wildlife conservation, and an MS and Ph.D. in entomology from the University of Florida. Currently, she is an Assistant Professor and the Vector-borne Disease (VBD) Team leader at Penn State Extension.
