A Free Educational Forum for Educators, Parents, the Agricultural Tourism Business, Agricultural Producers, and the General Public

Learning objectives: Recognizing different types and individual biology of ticks including the invasive Asian Long Horned Tick, best repellents for different age groups, how to judge your repellent using the EPA site “rate my repellent”, targeting children and agritourists for tick education including the potential for creation of a coloring book for adults and children, clarifying the confusion concerning different tick borne diseases or syndromes such as alpha gal, personal and home landscape protection, proper protection when visiting natural sites, sites that are inherently more likely to have a high tick population (Nassau or Western Suffolk versus Central or Eastern Suffolk) or agritourism sites, e.g., pick your own, corn mazes, etc. and how the agriculture business community can prepare for and mitigate tick related issues. Pitfalls and misconceptions of product use against tick populations and how to construct an individualized “tick preparedness program” will be covered. Time will be reserved at end of program for audience questions and concerns.
